ABOUT

My main instrument is bass. Mostly of the fretless variety now but i do own fretted basses. I love playing Blues, Motown, Funk, R&B, Soul, Disco, Surf, Rock, Jazz, Reggae, Pop. I'm also a multi instrumentalist. I play bass pedals, keyboard, guitar, mandolin, ukelele, autoharp, flute, sitar, didgeridoo, recorder, harmonica, different percussion etc...
I've been playing bass casually, semi professionally and professionally for almost 40 years. I've been in original bands, cover bands, sat in for a night or a session with many bands and artists.


I'm always up for jamming with people. You can see lots of things i've done at, Yorg Rinker * com. If you've made it this far; I have an original band right now and we are looking to add some pieces. You can watch the HYPER JIVE video for that. I can direct you to some of our newer stuff if there's interest.
