ABOUT

Hey there,
I'm a 40yr old bass player and have been playing since high school in all sorts of pro & semi pro bands (all original music groups to all cover song groups doing everything from pop, rock, alt rock to soul, r&b, funk & jazz). I have lots of live performance experience playing in small bars and clubs to playing in large theatres and outdoor festivals with studio dates all along the way.

I have good gear, a car, a wife & kid and I know how to prepare for rehearsals and make the most out of the time spent on music.

Thanks,

Ben
