SEEKINGBand to Join.
Electric and upright bass in the Barrie area
I began music at an early age and by the time I was in my teens I was working in rock and blues bands .
I relocated to London Ont..to attend University and began working in local bands .After graduation I spent 3 years traveling North America performing with the show band Friendly Persuasion which lead to the opportunity to meet and work with BB King for a period of time .
At the end of the Persuasion tour I relocated to Barrie and began working with the French Connection a busy jobbing band for several years.
During this time I took up the upright bass and began to study jazz at York University and Humber College, as well as studying privately with Juno award winning bass player Mike Downs .
These days I am working with the Baytown Big Band as well as some studio work and filling in with local Blues,Jazz and Rock bands .
What I`m looking for now is the opportunity to pair up with other accomplished musicians who have a direction and a need for a reliable long term bass player to join them .
