ABOUT

Electric bass player.

I have played in bands/gigs in many modern music styles: rock, jazz, fusion, metal, blues, and in theater pit bands. I have also produced a number of Christmas albums.

I know my role as the bass player, and I serve it well. I know how to play with other musicians and make everyone sound better, bridging the rhythm with the melody. It seems a bit silly to have to say that here, as that's pretty much what a competent bass player should be doing. But based on my few interactions with folks on BandMix, it seems I needed to add that sentence.

Seeking a piano/keyboard player or guitarist with considerable experience.

I say "moderately" committed only because I do not want to be on the road 2 to 3 nights a week. If you need a full time bass player for 100+ gigs a year, I'm not the right fit. I might make an excellent fill-in for you, though.

I do not do drugs. If getting blitzed is a big part of your thing, I'm not your guy. Not judging- I'm just not into it.

Influences

I appreciate superior composition, arrangement, and interpretation. I generally like many styles of music, but I prefer music that has a little edge to it. That doesn't mean I only like music that includes distortion. Mozart has an edge. So do the BeeGees.

Bass Guitar:
Advanced

EQUIPMENT

All set for bass for small to medium-sized venues.

All of the songs below I have recorded just for fun with a basic Tascam digital recorder. It's a creative outlet, and I have not spent hours and hours fine tuning them. I play all the instruments but for when my daughter sits in on drums or recorder.
