I also have experience playing pop, rock, country, and extensive musical theater pit orchestra experience. One of my strengths is sight reading and the ability to create bass lines that are melodic while still maintaining the foundational role of the bass. I have experience touring (Mystical Hot Chocolate Endeavors, The Witching Hour tour, October 2019) and played in the backing band for Youtube-famous comedian Chris Fleming at his Boston stand-up comedy show in 2018 at the Wilbur Theater.
