ABOUT

Been playing bass since Jr. High School. Overseas most of my career and played whenever I could find decent players (hard to do amongst the diplomatic community.) Retired in 2012 and relocated to Pensacola, FL, in 2014. Trying to get a new band going. Have great female lead singer. Had one session in a previous incarnation with chills up the spine quality, but was waylaid by out-of-state family emergencies for several months. Singer and I trying to resurrect it but previous members no longer available. Singer and I coordinated a list of 10-12 songs to start with via email while my SO and I were out of state. Will provide to interested parties. Idea to play covers more or less like the original but not afraid to try variations either. SICK of egos, prima donnas and control freaks!
