Instrument(s):

  • Electric Bass

    Primary instrument: Intermediate
    I have played in a few bands - I incorporate my past experience playing drums and guitar for many years to develop a unique improv/jam style that finds patterns and pockets with both the drummer and guitar player. I am always happy to jam!

  • Drums

    Secondary instrument: Strong Intermediate
    Drums were my first love in elementary/middle school, into high school and college. It was slowly replaced by guitar and bass over the years, but also on the back-burner. I'm not a pro, but I can jam most genres.

  • Electric Guitar

    Secondary instrument: Strong Intermediate
    I can play along to most contemporary/rock/reggae/ska/fun music, and hit many solos (aside from the "Slash-esque" solos out there). I love playing my hollow-body and getting a bit crunchy to rock, or super clean to get fun-kay.

  • Acoustic Guitar

    Secondary instrument: (unknown skill level)

  • Djembe

    Secondary instrument: Intermediate
    I enjoy jamming with various hand instruments and can keep a good beat and improvise to song movements.

About Ben:

I love playing just about anything just for the experience of it. I was in a ska band for several years playing drums then lead guitar, have done some solo playing on acoustic guitar to include just regular acoustic rock/reggae/latin, and my bass skills are derived from my love for both drums and guitar. I'm currently playing bass in the band COSMIC ROMP with musicians I have met in Flashband.
