Group or Band bookings are negotiated on a case by case basis, I represent a number of bands, ensembles and small groups. Each has varied standards and requirements. All the musicians I perform with are professionals – each have studied and trained countless hours to provide the quality musicianship deserving of a professional wage as found in any other profession. Live music and musicians make all events better. Hire quality – expect professionalism. We take our job seriously and have a great time making your event the best it can be.
As a soloist, I am comfortable reading any number of charts and performing in a multitude of styles. I can perform both pizzicato and arco as needed. My electric basses (Status, Gibson Ripper, 74' Fender Jazz and 63’ Fender P) are all four-string, but I am equally comfortable on five or six string basses. I own three varied amplification systems – all suitable for varied situations – small clubs to concert halls. I can sing harmony and the occasional lead vocal. Travel is an option, although I need ample notice. Performance rates are at standard scale, studio recordings are either flat rate or percentage.
Music is nothing separate from me. It is me... You'd have to remove the music surgically.
