ABOUT

I'm a casual bassist and guitarist. I've been playing for almost 30 years but don't practice often so I'm not an incredible player by any means, I've been playing drums on an e-kit for about 10, keyboards very casually over the last 5 years.

I have a flexible schedule work schedule so I'm available most evenings and weekends. No wheels currently.

It'd be fun to jam out some covers and see what happens from there. Email me: sleepdirt (at) 'gee mail' . com with "Jam" in the subject line.
