Hi there - Jeremy here... I'm a Keyboard player from Humboldt County - been playing since age 3 (call it 35 years). I'm considered a musical autodidact and love to play out the standards of jazz in the jams of the dead - it's a fun mixture.

I play an ALesis QS8.1, Fender Rhodes, Ensoniq QS1, Emulator Emax+HD... also, banjo and mandolin.

Hey there shakedown,
I have 3 basses; USA made Fender Jazz bass, Mexican P-bass, and an upright Palomino electric(looks kind of like the one the guy from YMSB plays).
I play thru an ampeg amp. (i actually can't remember the model), its about 350 watts thru a Yorkville cab with four 10"s.
I lived in N.H. for 11 years saw many shows @ CCCC.

Nice! Hey the reason I ask is my brother plays bass and is the market for a new amp. If you get a chance to check the model of your Ampeg, let me know - that is one of the ones he's looking at.

Thanks again! :cool:

Hey Humboltnorm, every year we try to have a "Dead" jam on my friend's property along the Mattole River (just off Shelter Cove road). We'll invite you to jam with us next time we go up there..
