Freelance

In the decade of the 1980's, Freelance was a popular variety band based in the Carlisle/Boiling Springs area of central Pennsylvania.

Freelance specialized in private gigs: corporate events, wedding receptions, officer clubs, etc.

I played guitar with Freelance from February 1984 through mid-1986, and also did a 1-month run on bass guitar during the band's final month in December 1990.

 

These 5 collections are the only recorded gigs where I played.
