Let’s Groove

My job is to respect the music first and play my groove on what it is calling for. This isn’t about my chops or ego, it’s about affecting the audience.


I prefer to connect and play fairly early in any process to make sure the chemistry is there. Plenty of great folks just don't quite vibe together for making music and that's cool. Just making the contact is probably worth it!
