ABOUT

I've been playing bass around Texas and Louisiana for over 30 years. I'm interested in jamming with open minded, creative folks. Genre/style is not as important as ability to musically communicate with others. I am very experienced and interested in "sub" work . I have many good references. I can read and have a good ear. I also play upright.

EQUIPMENT

My primary rig is an SVT with either a 410, 210, single 15 or some combination. For a backup I use either a GK800 or an AI. My main electric bass is a EBMM Sterling. I also have an upright and an ampeg baby bass...and a #2 washtub. And a truck!
