ABOUT

Originally from England, moving to Reno from the midwest. Started playing piano at age 5, switched to bass guitar at age 16. Played session gigs until I moved to the USA. Based in Illinois for over 30 years playing in several bands: one of which played Milwaukie Summerfest and also toured England.

Would like to find a group of older talented people that play more function events. The late night bars are not really for me any more. 2021 is my relocation year, so I will be back and forth to the area.

Influences

So many, easier to list what I don't like: that is pretty much Rap, screaming metal. As a bass player, I do like music with a grove. Some musician examples: Paul McCartney, Roger Glover, Bernie Edwards, John Taylor, John Entwistle, Mark King. Some band examples: The Who, Supertramp, Chic, ZZ Top, The Bangles, The Gogo's, Bob Marley, Elton John.
