Bass Guitar ability
Influences: All Sixties/seventies Music Styles
Yes! 25 years experience.In bands,and began playing solo as gtr/voc in 1990, by accident!
I was asked to play for three hours at a summer festival in Scotland and it started from there!
In 1991,I did u.k's STARS IN THEIR EYES as MARC BOLAN.This led to an appearance in a pop video for GAVIN FRIDAY shown on I.T.V'S CHART SHOW.
I then played with X-T.REX which included 2 ex-members of the original T.REX.
Played solo and in local bands...
Then moved to PLYMOUTH where i formed REVOLUTION,a tribute to MARC BOLAN/T.REX.A 2 hour glam rock show.
My solo show is mainly 70's,my favourite era,but in anything up to three hours,or the standard two 45 min spots,i cover 50's to the 00's
Depending on the show,i play gtr/voc only,or it is all professional backing trax,or a mixture of both.I also like to take on any requests i can! [my act has been known to include everything from Buddy Holly to Lady Ga Ga!!!]
In the past two years i have worked full time professionally with a tribute act touring the u.k,and playing theatres,holiday parks,hotels,parties,restaurants,clubs and pubs.The act is mainly Jersey boys [Frankie Valli /Four Seasons of course] ,and Showaddy waddy,plus Tamla Motown/disco. We dress smartly,doing dance routines and four part harmonies.I have natural harmony,and a high range vocal.Also play bass guitar and keyboard in the show.
I consider myself a good team player,have fun and good interaction with audiences of all ages.Also i specialise in tributes to McCartney,and David Essex.
Solo,or tribute band wise,would love the opportunity of working abroad with my act.
