My performing experience dates back to the mid '70s at State College, PA, where I financed my education playing in various bars almost nightly. This was the original Justin Case Band.
I lived in Nashville for nearly a decade, working at various record companies, and again virtually supporting myself through live performance. One one occasion the "reincarnated" Justin Case Band opened for the band Orleans. This show was broadcast live over the radio. Shortly thereafter, upon learning that I would soon be the father of triplets (3 boys!), I made the difficult decision to return home to California and put my music career temporarily on hold.
My sons are 18 now and off to college, so I'm enthusiastic about picking up more or less where I left off. Over the past 6 months I've appeared at Angelina's Wed. Open Mic at both the River Theater and Bullpen in Guerneville, as well as several less formal, more impromptu appearances at the River Theater and Bullpen.
I've discovered that I love playing music outdoors in downtown Guerneville; many times over the last year I've wandered down to the Plaza or thereabouts, set up my equipment, and performed an informal "concert" simply for the joy of it! I also sing regularly as a soloist or with the Praise Team at Forestville United Methodist Church.
I play a great deal of my own original music. I've got an album with 11 of these songs put together, and now I'm in the process of accumulating funding to finance its release. I'm totally open to trying your original work too. I have a list of 120 or so popular cover songs from widely varied genres. Examples of artists heavily represented on this list: George Strait, Hank Williams, Van Morrison, Eagles, Joe Cocker, Bob Seger, Marshall Tucker Band, Johnny Russell, Bob Dylan, Allman Brothers, Johnny Cash, Travis Tritt, The Band, Charley Pride, Lynard Skynard, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Buffett and so on.
For additional information, please refer to http://www.reverbnation.com/justinmichaelcase. There are 9 songs uploaded here, 8 of which are my original work. I'm currently #6 on the ReverbNation Rock Chart, mainly thanks to my wife's relentless promotional skills. There are downloads and ringtones available from the Justin Case store at Reverbnation - https://www.reverbnation.com/store/index/artist_1597932.
