Former member of the Critical View Band. I've been playing bass professionally for more than 40 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 progressive rock, old school R&B, Jazz and some New Country & Southern Rock.
I am now with a band that has fun and enjoys getting out to gig. Professional bands from progressive rock to R&B welcome.

My bass playing influences are far too many to list.....to name a few; Stanley Clark, Jaco Pastorius and Marcus Miller...also bands such as Doobie Brothers, Eagles, Pink Floyd, Toto, Steely Dan and Journey. I love when a very technical song comes together.

I currently use a Mark Bass Traveler rig with a Little Mark III and Little Marcus heads and a second Ashdown cabinet.
My basses include 2 custom made Carparelli six string basses, a 60th anniversary Fender Jazz 4 string and a Fender Jazz Fretless. I also use a Zoom B3N effects pedal and a Shure BLX wireless input unit. I also have in ears, and a mic mechanic for my backing vox.
