Bass Guitar, Keyboard.
I'm a Jewboy from Hawaii/New York and have been in this wonderful city over 5 years now, and I now need some fellow surf music enthusiasts. Real surf, instrumental and dark, dreamy and foreboding. (Sometimes happy!) I have a catalog of original surf songs that Dick Dale wishes he wrote. Influenced by my Russian Jew heritage and black metal.
Needed: Pounding Bassist (who enjoys the occasional guitar stint), and a Screeching Keyboardist. Musical proficiency unnecessary. Must love Ramones and be sick of jazz.
I have a practice space with drums/bass/guitar therefore one need not transport their own gear.
Had a surf band in Boston in 2003-2004 but then I moved here and pursued a film sound career, which was successful at the cost of the band... Now this band must reform!
