Booking Rates and Policies

Maine is rooted in a seasonal economy and my rates try to reflect

and accommodate this economic climate.  

   From May (1st) to the end of December (31st) I require a minimum of $250 per performance. Length of performance, rehearsals, travel expenses are negotiable. I will perform for lesswith the condition that if another job emerges that meets or approaches my minimum requirement, that I have the option of finding a competent sub. If I cannot provide such a replacement, I will honor my commitment to you and perform as contracted. $250 is the minimum for me to commit to a performance date during the "Peak" season.

Music, Audio & Education

A native of Skowhegan Maine, I have been playing bass professionally within the south eastern United States for the past 20 years. In 2011 I returned to the area, and joined the faculty at Husson University's New England School of Communications. At NESCom, I teach Audio I and II Labs, Music Theory/Production, Critical Listening, Music Business and Structure and Style of Music for Audio Engineers.

Music Performance
  My heart is in Jazz.  What drew me to this beautiful art form is the great American song book and the swing era.  Strong melodies, rhythm and lyrics are the musical elements that hooked me into the genre.  I also love traditional jazz (New Orleans), Swing/Big Band, Bebop, Hot Club and Hardbop.

  I am also an enthusiast and participant in Western Art Music, Musical Theater as well as common popular genres such as Blues, Reggae, Latin/Afro Cuban, Classic Country, Funk and last but not least Soul/R&B
