ABOUT

[BIO]
I'm 50 years old and have been playing bass guitar on and off since 1983. Ive been in a number of bands in CT and MA and I've played everything from heavy metal covers to classic rock to indie originals. I'm into classic rock, progressive rock, and party rock and have played in a number of clubs around central CT.
