Keyboard, Bass Guitar.
We have a front man who plays guitar and sings, and a lead player who also sings, and a drummer who also sings.
We play Rock, Country, Americana/Blues. Fun cover tunes. We like Bob Seger ,Tom Petty, Billy Joel, Mellencamp, Clapton, and a wide variety of selections. We are also open to suggestions.
We practice at a fully equipped home studio in boiling springs. It's a very nice and comfortable set-up.
We are drama-free and enjoy ourselves at practice. No ball-busting. We practice a few hours, but take decent breaks to hang out, talk and review the material and dynamics.
We are going to roll out our set list and would like to be gigging in 2 months. Once we roll out the set list and are gigging for money we can entertain suggestions for set list additions. The front man has decades-old connections for gig spots when we are ready.
To avoid spam and goofballs please connect with me by email and then we will talk on the phone. After that I will put you immediately in touch with the front man and he can bring you out for an audition.If you are a decent bass player and like this type of music and are available, equipped and flexible it's more about personality connections than who has the best licks.
Too good to be true? That's what I thought, but I liked these guys right away and they made me feel welcome.
Still reading? Didn't email me yet? OK. We are looking for a "Yes man" (or Yes Woman) like this:
I have had some calls from some wishy-washy types. There are only so many years left in this lifetime so LET'S GET IT STARTED, please! Yes! Yes! Yes!
Call me and be ready to come right over to my house with your bass and small amp.
Still reading? haven't emailed me yet? OK. Here is me on acoustic so you can see my skills and know that I am serious. I will be playing electric in the band. I have a 24 fret Peavy Flying V.
(Don't worry, I'm NOT the lead singer.)
I get long-winded. Sorry. I am just excited about this opportunity and ready to get going on it.
Thank you for reading our ad! Rock on!
