ABOUT

** UPDATE - August 2019 - Bass, drummer, female vocalist and Funky guitarist are looking for a KEYBOARD player to join a new Leicestershire based Funk project. It should be fun.

Keys duties would include anything from horn stabs to full on Hammond solos as the need arises. Horns players also welcome to get in touch.

----------------------------------
Hello.
I’m a bass player looking to work with fellow musicians / vocalists to play stripped down Dance Music, Funk and Soul. Happy with covers and / or originals but would prefer an emphasis on a heavy groove and rhythm section. I’m also happy to join an existing band who are heading in a reasonably complementary direction.

I played guitar for 30 years on and off but I’m really enjoying a more recent conversion to bass. I have a fair bit of gigging experience as a guitarist. I’m now looking to play out more as a bassist and to stretch my bass playing in a “groovier” direction

For me, age and technical virtuosity is less important than being on the same page musically, a friendly, chilled and inclusive approach and enjoying the journey.

If this sounds up your street, please drop me a line.

* If you aren't able to use the contact function here just drop me an email on kayfunk1@ y a h o o . com (without the spaces!)
