Welcome Fellow Bottom Feeders!!!
Hi Don Shafer here. Playing exp. 35+ years. Nickname from band mates "The Rock" cause I'm in the pocket , and I love to rock! You may check out some of my music
We have two CD's available on ITunes "Seasons of Life" and "Deep Psychologys Resonances"
I also co-write with a Japanese musician Shyonen. He's a very talented artist and a dear friend. We have collabed with artists from all over the world. My day job is a nurse manager at one our biggest hospitals. It is like any job full of trials and tribulations but very gratifying. I'm happily married for 20+ years and we have 3 lovely kids. We have two grandkids Rylie Grace 4yrs. and Brooks 11/2 year old. Animals are Family: Bagle(beagle/bassett) named "Ned". We just added a little mixed mutt named "Kandi". We rescued a Rottie/mix from Indy her name is Mina.I found Christ in 2004 and it has been very rewarding(didn't know what i was missing). I have gotten the old R&R band together and are back at it, just a slower pace. Also I have been recruited at church to play in the new contemporary worship band and church orchestra. So my plate is full with being the Keeper of The Lowend. Thanks for stopping by!
