ABOUT

Hi

I'm an accomplished and experienced bass player, both electric and double bass and play acoustic guitar as well, mainly finger picking style.

I do lead and backing vocals, happy doing both or neither (bit of a rock voice). Regular gigging experience in pubs, working mens club circuit and festivals up to audience size of of 1000+ and have proved myself to be a good performer with lots of stage presence - I like to put on a good show.

I don't really mind what I play but I love all types of music from frank sinatra thru folk and country to glam rock & heavy rock, old or modern.

I've been in quite a few bands over the years including Vinyl Tap, the original Spinal Tap tribute band and the Razors; 1950's Rock and Roll. Currently play in party/functions band About Time that's coming to an end so looking for the next thing.

I currently play Lakland and Fender basses, Framus Upright, and have a professional backline and own transport.
