Bio

My music career started back in 1963 in Niagara Falls, NY where I performed my first paying gig. I worked playing bass during those 15 years in the Falls extensively around Western and Central New York and Southern Ontario. My playing did slow down in St Louis and Dallas because of family and trying to maintain a day job to put food on the table and roof over their heads. The family is all grown and I retired a few years back, so music is all I do now.

Currently, I am playing the occasional gig around North Houston with a predominantly Country/Texas Country Outlaw band that also does a small amount of Classic Rock. On evenings during the week you can find me providing the bass backup and support for local guitar players/singers at Open Mics throughout the area. I'm also fortunate enough to get to play for quite a few festivals and charity event. I am always available to anyone who would like a bass guitar backing them up for any other kind of performance

I enjoy playing Blues, Country, Funk, Classic Rock, Jazz, R&B, Southern Rock, Contemporary Christian, and just about anything else with a good bass line. I'll work with a full band or back an acoustic player either with an electric bass or acoustic bass. BTW, I play real bass, laying down the bottom with a solid beat and try to stay hooked in with the drummer. I am not a bass soloist and have no interest in being a lead guitar player trapped in a bass player's body.

I am available days, evenings, and weekends with adequate notice.

So, if you have a song that needs a bass line, I'm your guy; drop me a line and let's chat.
