What to Expect
What ever it takes to make the show a success!
As your bassist/Sound Company/ Band Leader you can expect someone who is always Professional, Punctual, Courteous and know how to follow directions. You can expect a person who comes to the gig prepared and ready to play. I listen to the other band members very intently so I can provide a solid foundation for the music being played. I do not play too loud or too much. I pride myself on finding just the right volume to help drive the band without drowning out the vocalist. Providing a solid groove is what I specialize in. I do strive for a certain level of excellence in all that I do so expect great things if you hire me. Cost? I'm not the most expensive and I'm willing to negotiate but I do expect to be compensated for my services. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or suggestions. I'm very open minded and open to constructive critism. We'll do what ever it takes to make it happen!!!
I play all styles of music...R&B, Jazz, Latin, Gospel, Pop, Rock, Country, World Music. I am masterful at capturing the feel of a particular style of music, I was bassist for Ismael Kouyate best know for the Broadway show Fela and in college I was one of the bassist chosen to accompany the Legendary Tito Puente.
Very simply I love to play music and I'd love to bring my talents to your situation. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you soon.
