  • Do you need a bassist/vocalist/drummer for one gig or longer (Including fill-in gigs, last-minute gigs, touring (I have a current Passport), or studio session work)? Your search is over! Presently residing in CA (California); can relocate if necessary.
    Professional & on time - NO restrictions on travel or length of time to be on tour. Dedication to performance excellence is all that matters to me. No ego here - I live to create & enjoy quality music with talented, dedicated musicians.
    Vocal range is high tenor (Great harmony/lead parts). Ability to adjust from one part to another with no delay. The bottom line is that I’m an "all-in" player; I do whatever it takes to be successful in every sense of the word, totally prepared, always 110% ready for every gig.
    Requesting paying gigs only please, unless for a really great cause. Rate of pay determined on a per-gig basis (Due to the details and requirements of each gig). You have my word/my promise that I will always go "above and beyond" what is required so that I can give you, the employer, the best of me and my talents. I'm looking forward to playing great music with you soon!
