Bio
I'm an old-timer who has played with a variety of groups over the past 40 years. I've been idle for about two years, and i'm gettin' the "itch" to get back into playing (primary interest is weekend jobs, but i'm flexible). I've been playing bass for about 40 years and i'm comfortable with most any kind of music, but most familiar with pre-80's stuff. I read music and charts, and play by ear. I have my own equipment (Peavey 4X15, Peavey 410 amp, Fender precision) I can move it myselr, and i have relable transportation. I can do lead singing (old standards, country, bluegrass) and occasional harmonies. My introduction to the last group i played with was the keyboard player saying, "Hi... my name is XXXX.... glad to have you with us... in E-flat... one, two, three" and i was with them for eight wonderfully happy years.
