ABOUT

I've played primarily in Classic Rock and Blues bands and appear regularly at the Rockpile..

Mostly, I've played lead or second lead guitar, but more recently I took up bass guitar and play both bass and guitar in classic rock and blues bands.

I'm comfortable as well with R&B, funk, soul and reggae, all of which we usually work into our setlists.

For the most part, I've done backup vocals, but have started to take on some lead vocals, though I still have a long way to go.

I'm over 50, so am looking for bandmates of similar age.
