ABOUT

Lead guitar with backing vocal ability; over 25 years experience. I've been in various bands in the area - from tribute bands, to classic rock, alternative, and most recently with bands that are mostly modern rock (90's to now) and a little on the heavier side. I always feel we're there for the crowd, so the band's set list needs to be songs people know and like to hear, not just songs that we like to play, or anything progressive or so obscure that most people are not familiar with it. I have all pro gear, as well as some additional lighting and PA gear. No drama, ego, or commitment issues, just want the music to be right and sounding great; can play everything from guitar gods to classic and modern rock. You can sample my playing by listening to the songs on this site.

I'm usually looking to gig weekends about 1-2 times a month, but have regular practice once a week to keep the set list fresh with new material. If interested in connecting, drop me a line, but please INCLUDE your email since I don't have a premium account on this website - thanks! You can also email me at mb28590 at aol dot com.

Look forward to hearing from you...
