SEEKINGBand to Join, Bass Guitar.
Very experienced and versatile in most styles such as hardrock, jazz, hip hop, r&b, blues, funk, and latin, etc., etc. Over 30 years of experience playing drum set, hand drums, and percussion. Many years of experience singing with great vocal ability, and a wide vocal range for lead and background singing. Very professional, easy going with a great attitude. Very experienced in both live and studio performance. Key elements to my playing ability are 1) very responsive to mood, feel, and emotional content of a cover or original song. 2) very good ear and I listen very closely to all instruments being played around me especially in a live performance scenario. 3) groove is the only real, false god :)
