Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a lead and rhythm guitarist with 40 years of playing experience and a lot of gigs under my belt. I just moved to Auburn in 11/19. I enjoy playing both rhythm and lead -- I have good meter and I try to play with touch, tone and taste. I enjoy being part of a band that plays for the song, not for individual attention.

Currently, I am playing with Norman Collins & The Tumblers out of SF and Wild Child out of Redwood City. Being new to Auburn, I would be interested in meeting gigging musicians in the area who might need a hand in the guitar department.
