About me:-
Experienced and competent bassist. Mostly played classic rock and blues.
(Also open to additional opportunities to play some interesting stuff.)
Having founded both Turner Street Crash and TCR, both successful covers bands in South Wales, now joined with Backwater Blues duo, Mick & Garry, and Donny drummer Damien to form The GREEN BULLET BLUES BAND.

I'm 61 so would probably suit older folk but open to anything fun.
I am retired so free pretty much anytime (when the good lady permits!)
