SEEKINGBand to Join.
I'm a bassist living in Hoboken, NJ. I've been filling in here and there for the past few years, but I'm looking to join a steady, original band that plays/practices regularly.
I also happen to be a concert photographer too, if that's pertinent. Very active in the Asbury Park area. mikepetzingerphoto on IG.
I'm jazz-trained and have experience playing funk, jazz, country, reggae, metal, rockabilly, and progressive.
Aside from that, I'm frequently up to jam (just for the hell of it, in a non-commital fashion), when I'm not busy, so drop me a line.
Formerly a member of Burn the Brightest, Fifteen Fleeting, Nikki Sue and the Bad News, and Elephant Goes West, and have filled in with The Hsu-nami, Pistol Charmer, and Beachfire.
Here's a couple links to the last projects I was involved with:
**The songs posted above were written as a band. I am responsible for the bass parts, but I'm not taking credit for everything else that's there. It's a sample of my playing.
