Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a person that LOVES music and I love to have fun with the people I'm playing with. Primary instruments are Guitar and Bass, but I can also play Piano, Harmonica, Banjo, The Great Highland Bagpipes (I currently play with the Sutherland Pipe Band in Natick), Tin Whistle, Kerry Low Whistle, Bodhran, hand drums and have been known to play the drum kit on occasion although I'm probably more enthusiastic than I am skilled. I've had the opportunity to play in a few bands and I have done some studio work. I'm looking for a group of musicians that is looking to try something new and different and most importantly wants to have some fun. I'm a funk bassist (slap is a specialty), blues guitarist with some funky influences and I'm a huge fan of Celtic Music in general, both trad and modern.
