ABOUT

Guitar Player/Bass Player/Singer/Songwriter from Jackson, NJ USA (originally from Red Bank, NJ). I define my style as a fusion of rock & roll, R&B, electric blues, swing blues, reggae, Stax, country, funk, and folk...with some jazz, celtic, ska, and soul flavorings thrown in as needed. Basically, I'm a typical kid from Jersey.

I'm seeking like minded musicians who are into making great sounding music, enjoy working hard to get the tunes right, and playing music that moves an audience (covers/tribute/originals/etc). I'm looking to hook up with folks who can rehearse in the central NJ area (I also have quality rehearsal space) and are looking to play mainly gigs within the Jersey Shore scene (Red Bank, Asbury Park, Sea Bright, Belmar, Long Branch, etc) as well as any other local events.

I am a standing member of the Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation.

EQUIPMENT

I have a ProTools set up in my home studio/rehersal space and a ton of songs I try to record from time to time. I mainly write using my Gibson L4-A Jumbo Acoustic Guitar and program the beats in ProTools using the Xpand Drum Plug-in....but I love playing LIVE more then anything.

My main electric guitars are a Gibson Les Paul Traditional, Fender Baja Telecaster, Gibson ES-135 hollow-body, a '62 Fender Strat and a '72 Fender Strat. I use a Fender Deluxe Reverb as my main amp for gigs and recording.

My bass rig consists of a Fender Jazz Bass with a Roland 100w Bass amp. I also have a Fretless Bass that I occasionally bring out to jam with.
