Hi, I'm a jolly, young (22) bassist looking for a funky band to join/form. I currently play for a moderately successful hiphop act from stoke but need something to open up on and have fun with.
I like to think of myself as a funk bassist and would happily slap all the time (but i can restrain myself ;) ). However, I do love all sorts of music so am happy to play anything as long as the people I'm playing with are not gimps or too serious about 'making it'.
I'm quite experienced and can keep up and jam effortlessly, especially where funk and rock are concerned.
I would most like to join a cover band who play something with a groove or a proper funk band but anything's good really.
