I love to perform! I think great sound also needs great visuals, energy, and personality so I also like to bring a lot of energy and flair to the stage!
I am a team player and strive to always get better. My main instrument is the trombone, and I add in harmonics and an occasional solo in rock, pop, R&B, soul, and funk tunes. I typically start with the role of harmonic strings and adapt to form brass licks. I do not mimic the melodies where not needed. I also can play trumpet and can do some back-up keyboards where an add-in to accompany the lead keyboard sounds cool. It's important for me to consider my relationship with a band as both professional and as friendships. My last band was very much like a family.
