The Manatees!

This is a clip of The Manatees playing at Hammerhead Fred’s taken by my friend Adam Johns, circa 2009. Its me and Scott Neese, who plays steel drums, guitar and sings. Best I can tell, 2012 marks 10 years of working with Scott. That’s longer than any other band I’ve played with. Freaky. Time flies.

My friend Suz Windham took this pic (and others!). I like the fuzzy effect. Here I’m playing solo in an interlude at a BitterSweet gig.

Dark and Fretless

Dark and Fretless

Even though you’ll usually find me playing my 7 string monster WishBass, my muse for the last 25 years has been my 4 string fretless Pedulla Buzz Bass. Someone said that fretless bass is the musical instrument closest to a human voice. Even playing my fretted 7 string I find myself still trying to make it ring out like my Pedulla.
