Current member of the Critical View Band. I've been playing bass professionally for more than 35 years. Played in numerous bands of all genres over the years. I enjoy playing classic rock & blues from the late 60's and 70's the most but also play music from the 80's to present day including old school R&B.
I am now with a band that has fun and enjoys getting out to gig. Professional bands from progressive rock to R&B welcome.
