I play bass, drums, rhythm guitar, a little piano, I've picked up a mandolin, and I sing. I play in three bands, one is more successful, but 24 Dinosaur is on the rise and Flannel Mouth had begun. Winestained Pages is my newest endeavor and I play bass with older guys who know what they're doing, we play Jam-Rock with a blues/jazz fusion twist. In 24 Dinosaur I play with a few friends of mine we've had about 30 names so far and settled somewhat on this newer one. We play anything and everything, originals to come, we cover alot of good stuff from Alkaline Trio to Van Morrison. Flannel Mouth is a 90s cover band, we rock everything from Alice in Chains to Angie Aparo.
