ABOUT

I play a spectrum of genres: Blues, Soul, World, Latin, Reggae, Folk, Jazz and Funk.

History: I've played in covers/corporate Bands since my mid-Teens, covers metal rock, covers pub rock and blues outfits. I fill in swing Big Bands (Jazz) and Jazz Trios. Played in pubs to 5 star venues to festivals.

I also study Jazz when I can.

Looking for creative and experienced/educated musicians.
I always look to learn from others - I cannot know all. Age agnostic. If you are interested in writing, recording, projects or gigging Contact pereimike at gmail
