Wes learned piano and cello as a child. He picked up guitar at age 13. When asked to play bass at age 14, he found that he liked the focus on rhythm. A friend sold him a ’64 Jazz bass back in 1976 and that has been his main instrument ever since.
Wes has performed with Hickory Hollow, The Mercenaries, Just Kids, and the Bourgeois Buffalo Hunters.
Influences: Van Morrison, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Who, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and the Allman brothers.
