ABOUT

Looking to jam.
Laid back guitarist/vocalist who likes some improvisation and has a deep love and appreciation for many types of music. Especially for the following: rock (all of it from rock & roll, blues rock, classic rock, southern rock, jam bands, roots rock, rockabilly, grunge and hard rock), country music (particularly classic & red dirt country), blues, r&b, funk, reggae, Americana, bluegrass and jazz & jazz fusion.

Please don't hesitate to reach out. I'm always looking to make new musician friends to possibly jam with, and also just to network with other musicians in the area and maybe check out some of their gigs. I'm not originally from here and enjoy taking in local live music. And even though I'm still kinda new to the Omaha area and don't know a whole lot of people, I do know there are a lot of excellent musicians around town who are also cool people. So text or call if you're interested in talking music.

Also, check out the video link to a compilation video of a band up in MN with me filling in on electric lead & slide guitar. It was my first gig with these guys and I only had three rehearsals with them prior, so it was admittedly rushed and a bit sloppy, but it'll let you see and hear how I sound on lead electric guitar live and in front of a decent sized crowd. Just keep in mind that since they were a country/southern rock band, I was trying to play in styles to best accompany and contribute to their sound. I can definitely also play rock, blues, Americana, hard rock, etc...almost any of the previously mentioned genres.
