ABOUT

Currently play bass for the 2nd and Vine band located in Murfreesboro. We have done a few FB live streams and recently played live for the Taste of Rutherford event.

Been playing guitar on and off since I was 12 years old. Intermediate player but not close enough to be pro. Wanting to find people in their 40 & 50s around the Murfreesboro area to jam or possibly play out occasionally. Practice at Ridenour rehearsal every once in a while. Currently playing bass for the band 2nd & Vine out of Murfreesboro.
