Prior band (2010-2015, Detroit, MI):

-Considerable experience in 3-7 piece bands, playing Dance, Funk, Rock and R&B.
-Gig experience includes corporate events, weddings, festivals, casinos, private functions, clubs, bars & restaurants.
-Proficient in finger style playing, as well as slap/pop. Fretted and fretless.
-Competent singer, usually carrying 5%-20% weight in lead vocals and filling in harmonies where needed (I can be heard as lead in "Waiting on the World to Change" and "Rock This Town" in the linked "A3 Demo").
-Professional, punctual & committed. No ego, no drama.
-Used to doing my "homework" and showing up ready to gig. Band practice seldom necessary.
-Competent in charts and improv.
-Experience playing with sequences.

I have been playing, consistently, for many years and can adapt to many different playing styles. I know my place in the mix, pick my spots and care more about the sound as a whole than my individual part.
