Band to Join.

ABOUT

Committed bassist looking for a band to join. I've never been part of a formal band, but I'm ready for new experiences and I learn quick.

I'm an author and mom of three during the day, but I'm happy to prioritize band practice/gigs for the right group.

I'm based in Rochester, but I'm open to traveling anywhere along the 90 thruway in NY (Buffalo to Syracuse), and possibly south down 390, depending on band needs. Please don't contact me if you need someone near NYC...? I am not there!
