ABOUT

Experienced bassist; have played in a number of gigging bands. Most of my experience has been with cover bands, but I have also played with singer/songwriters. I have played in rock and blues bands; I played for a number of years in a Grateful Dead band. I am versatile and can play a variety of styles. Besides bass, I also double on guitar, dobro, and play a bit on mandolin.

I have a number of basses, but I usually play a Fender Precision Bass (I have two of them.) I also have a fretless acoustic bass guitar for quieter gigs. I have several amps and cabs, depending on the size of the venue.
