ABOUT

Pro bassist with a love for the groove looking for other musicians to start a jazz fusion, funk or reggae band. Maybe one band that is capapable of all of the above if I find the right people. My passion is performing and that does includes touring. If you have a band that is already tight and you need a bassist? I may be your man.

I am not interested in joining ANY rock or blues bands! Most rock and blues bands just don't inspire me. Not that I don't like blues or appreciate blues. Willie Dixon, Junior Kimbrough, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, I love 'em all and I've played a lot of blues gigs in my life. But I am officially retired from the blues. Stretching out and creating killer grooves is what I'm all about. That's where my heart is. That is where my heart has always been.
