SEEKINGBand to Join.
String Bass, Electric Bass and Sousaphone player raised in New Orleans. B.A. Jazz Studies Loyola Univ New Orleans, La. I am a Vocalist with a voice that captures most of the tenor range and some of the Baritone. I can read any kind of music either on sight or with rehearsals. I have performed with too many people to list here, but I have been a pro in Los angeles for 30 years. Toured with a number of acts as well. If you need a great vocalist (lead and backup) A groovy player (played with Ziggy Modeliste of the Meters) or just someone who can play, I am our guy. I am seeking out pro situations only. Would join a band that has it going on, but need to pay bills like all of us..
