I am an avid musician and have been playing bass for 50 years. I started my first band in 1967 playing in many venues throughout the RI area. In the early 70s I joined the band Trickster and we recorded several originals and also opened for several large acts including the Leslie West Band and 38 Special. In the late 70’s and 80’s I worked with the band Splitt and performed early new wave and classic rock and roll. I then moved on to perform full time on the road throughout New England, in a 1980s cover band called Tracer and many years as a bassist and vocalist for the Fuzzy Side Band and the classic rock band, Rough Shot. At this time I am performing with The Bohemian Hipsters (The BoHips).
With influences from bass legends such as Carol Kaye, Jaco Pastorius, Chris Squire, John Entwistle and Tal Wilkenfeld I have focused on acoustic, rock, blues and jass bass techniques. With the addition to 50+ years of vocal experience, I have brought the highest caliber of entertainment to all of the projects I have participated in.
I am always looking for interesting new projects, please do not hesitate to contact me if you think my profile fits a new or existing project.
