Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar.

ABOUT

I've been playing in bands since I was 18 years old. Visit me on at: ://./FerrellElectronics
I switched from playing across the state as a bass player to keyboards in 1983. I went into the production end of the business from 1993 to 2000. The stage and lighting used for the Charleston Sternwheel Regatta was my company. I've worked with everyone from willie Nelson, George Jones, and most of Nashville to groups like Aerosmith, Nsync, Britney Spears, Motley Crue, 3Doors Down, Nickleback, The Trans Siberian Orchestra, to Disney on Ice and Ringling Bros./Barnum & Bailey Circus. Although I still do professional pyrotechnics for major concerts, I sold the production company and went back to playing keyboards in 1998. Keyboards is my primary instrument, but I am still a comfortable bassist.

Influences

I'll play about anything thrown at me. If I can hum it, I can play it. Influences: the Eagles is the greatest band ever, however bands like Chicago, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Grand Funk were early influences. As a kid, my dad listened to 50's music, so therefore I grew up listening to that too. I hit my teens to the Motown sound of the Funk Brothers and still love that material. I was a rocker like everyone in the 70's. I was into the 80's hair bands. Later country singers like Ray Price, and Johnny Bush brought Western Swing influences to my internal mix. I like rock bands like REM, Greenday, Nickleback, and Three Doors Down. Female infuences include Patty Symth, Trans Siberian Orchestra, and Pat Benatar. I guess in summery I like all types of music as long as it is done well.
