    Annapolis, MD
    Current Setup:
    PRS Gary Grainger 5 string (Endorser)

    Recently retired my amp (SWR head & Eden 2x10 cabinet) in favor of IEM and DI.

    Alienears quad driver with jumpaudio IXM beltpack - Awesome!

    I've tried it all but really happy now with the Presonus StudioLive 24 for FOH and monitors and QSC K series speakers.
    Favorite Genres:
    Songs that people pay money to hear me play
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    I own a full-service talent agency booking 1000's of gigs each year. I play as many gigs personally as I want. My primary band is an 11 piece dance variety show band rated among the top bands in the country in this genre.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    1966 Fender Precision
    1978 Fender Jazz
    1996 Fender American Deluxe Jazz
    Fretless Fender Precision
    1994 Spector 5 String
    Original 80's vintage Steinberger - my "money" bass for many years.

    Too many to mention. Started way back with a Fender Bassman and 4x12 cabinet. Good thing my Mom had a station wagon. "Graduated" to my very own SVT 8x10 when I could drive. From then on got smaller and smaller as I got older until I now have no amp at all. I've had Ampeg, GK, Polytone, SWR, Eden, Line 6, etc.

    This is where I think I could really offer some help and advice. I've bought and used PA (FOH and monitor systems) for almost 30 years as the owner and manager of a successful Top 40 dance/show band. We've played in small rooms, clubs and concert sized venues all over the country. I'm kind of a gear head when it comes to PA.
    G.A.S. List:
    Sadowsky (check back regularly as this seems to change often).
    Influences and Teachers:
    I started off as a Beatles fan so I'm definitely a Paul guy. Also, got into Led Zeppelin and John Paul Jones early and stayed with the rock stuff for quite awhile. I joined a dance band as my summer job in college and discovered how much fun it is to lay down a funky groove so people can dance -- but the king of the funky groove IMHO is Rocco with T.O.P. Right now my favorite teacher is YouTube!
