LE BASSIST

I've been playing the bass since I bought a bullet-proof Washburn and a 2-ton Peavey amp from a friend in high school for $200 with no greater aspirations than to play in my brother's cover band one day.  20-ish years and many bands later--having been lucky enough to perform all over the country and the world--I find myself in NYC (via Chicago) playing on Broadway and beyond, making music with some of the best musicians I've ever encountered. Check out the interview I did in 2011 with fellow bassist Joe Wallace for his cool site NYCBass HERE.
