Hi,

I'm a bass player with 20+ years of playing experience, i'm currently looking for bands who need a bassist to support. I play both electric and upright bass, and can handle background vocals. I'm ok with playing covers for gigs. I'm quite versatile in terms of genres (see below) but prefer to play classic rock, blues or some jazz.

Please call me or email me if you're needing a bass player for your band/project, we can discuss availability. I'm able to teach bass as well
