SEEKINGBand to Join.
Originally from the New Orleans area, I recently moved to Oklahoma. I have done quite a bit of studio projects, playing funk, smooth jazz and pop.
I am a schooled musician having worked on a Masters in Performance at Loyola Univ, New Orleans. I have played for Jazzfest in New Orleans with Ivan Neville and Dumpstaphunk as well as played in Harry Connick Jr's band for several Mardi Gras concerts. I have also played in several cities in Brazil with a funk/cover band.
While in Illinois, I ran my own band, playing a mix of New Orleans funk as well as smooth jazz tunes(Stevie Wonder, SpyroGyro, Grover Washington, Rippington's) and some more edgy jazz tunes (Soul-live, Yellow Jackets, Chick Corea, etc).
I have played in bands that play country, blues, R&B, jazz, and funk. I am a fluent reader(Real Book, charts), and can solo with confidence(either inside the chord or outside).
Looking to play, make some great music and make some mone!!!
