Play bass and have fun! :)

Andy Dawson on SoundBetter

Easygoing bassist with added percussion skills looking to play regular live gigs!

Ex drummer turned bassist, lots of experience in many styles and very flexible, but a total ear player, can't read to save my life! Keen to play for fun as well as money (though money is always nice :) ) and very happy to support charity and community music projects. Particularly looking for local musicians/bands to participate with both regularly and irregularly as my current bands are fairly occasional at present.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
