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.
Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.
