ABOUT

Experienced and personable bass player/vocalist looking to join a working band or a project looking to gig..ideally a tribute act that aims to perform note-for-note covers of the band(s) they are tributing (is that a word?). I've been a professional musician for most of my life with 1000s of live performances under my belt. My approach to the bass is simple: Lock in solid with the drummer to create a rock-solid rhythm section that supports the rest of the band. No weird hang ups or ego here, but I am serious about the music that I play. I believe that "practice" is what you do at home to learn your parts, and "rehearsal" is when all players glue their parts into place. I'm easy to get along with and have played several genres of music. I'm looking to make music with people that take their craft as seriously as I do.
