Too many artists & covers to list here, depends on the line up.

I like nearly all music styles including M.O.R, rock (but not heavy metal), folk rock, funk, blues - anything with drive, energy, melody and feeling, all except for trad' jazz which I just can't get my head around. Not a reader (not fast enough to be any good anyway). Good kit, good attitude, not afraid to put in the graft, and I live in Broadstone so ideally placed for the Poole B'mouth area.

With thanks for looking, Dave.

Instrument experience:

Bass Guitar:


Trace Elliot stack, comprising:
Head - GP 12 SMX 350w
Top cab - 4 x 10" + adjustable horn 300w
Lower cab - 15" sub woofer 300w
For most pub gigs (indoor) the top half is sufficient. Also have a small practice amp.
Two 5 string basses with totally different characteristics.
Also about to invest in a 5 string fretless to cope with new material I'm working on.
