Good standard bass player and bass enthusiast!

I have been playing for some 30 years this year and over the last 5 years playing in a good local band and recording bass for a few local musicians as backing tracks

I play many styles and sounds, I have a preference for funk, disco, soul but often play solid rock, prog rock, acid jazz oriented stuff and so on

I would like to play regularly, around work and family commitments and a little more consistently than my current band is able to achieve as I feel regular rehearsals and gigs make you better and give you confidence

Bands wise

Jamiroquai, Floyd, Chic, Duran Duran, lots of late 70's and early 80's stuff

Too many bass players out there to steal something from, I don't want to be any of them but I've taken something from all I've listened to over the years
