ABOUT

Bass player looking for people to jam with, to form a band or to join a band. I think Jamming has become a lost art, back in the 70's we had jam sessions all the time and were able to express our feeling thru experimental instrumental music. I have mostly played in original rock bands, but have played in country and top 40 stuff during the late 70's and early 80's as well Southern rock. I played with the Danny Denver band for a few years and covered 50's, 60's pop, Country, blues and old rock.I am 63 years old but age isn't important to me as long as we are on the same page with the music. I enjoy playing ballads as well and have backed up several female vocalist in the past. I'm pretty much open to playing anything that I can feel, I don't feel the heavy head banging stuff. Contact four,1,O- eight,5 seven- twelve twenty six. As far as practicing or gigging, I'm retired and am open to play both day and night.

Influences

Most types of Rock, Blues, Jazz, R&B, Country, some oldies as well. I could name a bunch of great Bass players that have influenced me over the years, some you've heard of and some you never heard of, I don't get wrapped up in trying to be them. I take bits and pieces of who I like and apply it to my own style.
