I'm a born in the 50's bass player/vocalist (great bv’s/harmony and have a pretty broad repertoire of solo stuff when required).
Loads of gigging experience, touring, pro, semi pro and recording work over the years. Bit of a “jack of most styles” solid dependable journeyman type.
I live in Northampton and have accommodation in Poole, Dorset. Willing to travel or stay away and get really busy gigging.
Early influences include 60’s pop (The Searchers, The Hollies), Motown and Stax all the way to early Fleetwood Mac, Led Zep, Hendrix, Groundhogs and the like.
Founder member of "Coil", Northampton based band playing original music in the late 70's. Although achieved only minor success, our single did get lots of air play and we did the "The John Peel road show" a few times. ( https//youtu.be/OdrXBHFtv7g )
Toured with "Freddie Fingers Lee" during the Rock and Roll revival of the 80's with TV appearances in Germany and France.
Worked the European NATO basses in the American rock covers band “Private Life”. Most of that work came through the agency AIR in Spennymore.
Spent the 90's and 00's doing the northern club circuit and lots of functions/weddings/hotel type work.
After running my own band from 2003 to about 2012 things started to go a bit quite when my long time guitarist/vocalist associate and friend had to call it a day.
I’ve ended up doing lots of dep type jobs around London and the home counties since then (that’s good for my playing but I much prefer to do a well honed gig).
I worked for a 3 piece Putney based pub band “Red Herring” playing early 60's R&B and Blues up till March 2017. I’m still doing the odd dep for them. Thats me doing the vocal on Sonny Thompson number ( https//youtu.be/KHgaOjbUZZ8 )
I plan to up my game next year so I’m on the hunt for an exclusive permanent band.
This might involve joining an existing group of probably equally well seasoned players or finding an individual like minded guitarist/vocalist that can help quickly put something together from almost scratch that requires minimal rehearsing.
If you think you can help, please get in touch on here or direct. [email protected] Thanks
Possibly stupid question. Does arrange own courier mean that the seller is always willing to pack the instrument. I'm not missing or assuming something am I? Theres no packing courier service I've been unaware off.
