ABOUT

I've been playing bass for over 20 years. In the middle of that time I had to give it up (marriage, starting a family, career, etc). Finally, the starts have aligned and I am now in a position to start playing again.

Ideally, I would find someone to play with that understands family will always come first and that I am a grown up with a full time job who knows that his "rock star" days are probably behind him. Music is something I pursue to nourish my soul and not feed my bank account.

That's not to say that I have no interest in gigging. I actually want to play out and do shows. Even regional touring is cool. I just can't do a 2-week dive bar tour in the mid-west right now. As fun as that sounds, my PTO at work is saved for when my kids are with me. Now, after they're all 18 (4 more years)?? That's another story.

Also, I am currently 41. I am not a spring chicken, but I'm not OLD either. I do understand some bands want to keep the age range close. I'd just ask them to not shut any doors before at least taking a peek through them. I still love current music and am not stuck in the past. My personality is fun and energetic and can fit in with younger people as long as they aren't idiots. I can't tolerate that anymore.

My current rig consists of an MB 104 (4x10) cab paired with a Quilter Bass Block 800 head, a varied pedal board, Fender PJ Bass, and an Epiphone EB-0 short scale bass.

If you find this at all up your alley, hit me up. I'm down for jamming and seeing what happens.
