      Putting a band together is like putting Humpty Dumpty together sometimes.

      Don't you hate getting interrupted? I wish I could put an 810 at the day job so I could bass those morons into next week

      Mustang Sally is probably about girls. At least, I hope.

      Did you guys know that Mack the Knife isn't about the metaphor of getting girls but rather operatic rape and arson?

      Bands suck. If I were, you know, better, I'd go solo.

    Hi Everybody,

    I'm Jeremy and I play Blues, Jazz, Folk, and Country bass.

    I'm 35 years old (been playing for 20+) with a 9-5 day job. I read charts and lead sheets, can improvise, sight read, and have a classical theory education. Influences are the likes of Paul Chambers, Charlie Mingus, James Jamerson, Ron Carter, Michael Rhodes, and Charlie Hayden. I also know a couple hundred jazz, blues, and country standards and have fakebooks for the rest.

    After 8 years of classical training, I majored in music history (for a while) in college and got a (partial) jazz performance scholarship to a midwestern college with a great music department. A little jazz, some blues jams, a couple bar-friendly rock shows, and some private lessons turned into very, very, very little money after that and I decided that if I wanted to eat at somewhere more elegant than McDonalds someday, I'd have to switch to business. Replaced the essential gear recently, dusted off the chops, and I *think* I've been able to get enough of the arpeggios back that I finally feel comfortable saying "I'm a musician" again.

    Newest project is a 4 pc contemporary jazz/folk ensemble named Potluck. As of Summer 2014, we're just starting to get out and about in the St. Louis area.

    There's no money above the seventh fret!
