ABOUT

I'm a fairly decent bassist, 46 years old, who returned to gigging in a Journey tribute a few years back and now fancies something different.

I have a lot of experience of playing in rock/metal bands, and also motown / soul covers acts.

Having said that, I really fancy something a bit different & avant garde...maybe a folky / party / gypsy punk thing!!

Ultimately I want to have fun in a lively band, who audiences like to watch. I have no delusions about "making it big" but figure I could have a lot of fun with some like minded types.
