I'm a competent bassist with 40-odd years' experience, including bassist in the starting line-up of The Stealers once upon a time. I have existing commitments with my bands Changing Lanes, DisCover, Duo-Sonic, and Electric Acoustic, but do have some capacity for emergency fill-ins.

I play fretted and fretless electric bass and acoustic bass guitar, with facility in finger-style, pick-style and slapping, can contribute harmony backing vox, and can also fill in on guitar.

I'm playing rock and crunchy pop from the '50s to now with my current bands, and I've also been known to play a few jazz standards.

I have top-notch gear, a good ear, reliable transport and an easy-going nature, and I'm prepared to make myself available at short notice if possible.

I'm primarily interested in local work in the eastern suburbs, but will consider worthwhile jobs further afield.

Here's a clip from my band Changing Lanes:

If your outfit finds itself with a gig but no bassist, I know a lot of material, and if I don't know a particular number, I'm experienced enough to find something that fits and sounds good.
