SEEKING

Band to Join, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Piano.

ABOUT

I am a Front man; vocals and lead guitar. I am looking to either start or join a band that do originals and just enough blues blues/rock covers to get gigs. I have a gravely voice and sound like a combination of Warren Hayes and Joe Cocker. I have a CD out. My myspace is http://www.myspace.com/matedwardsband. I am looking for either an established working band or a key player with B-3 settings, a bassist and a drummer or to start one. I want to play original blues and blues rock with only enough blues/blues rock covers to get gigs. I want to play larger venues like the 930 club, Maryland Live, Madam's Organ or the Birchmere.

If you are interested in jamming please drop me a line. NOTE: SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY. I AM LOOKING TO GIG OUT AND NOT JUST PRACTICE IN THE BASEMENT.

EQUIPMENT

I play Fender gear. I have a couple of Fender amps and my main guitar is an American Standard Stratocaster "Ms. Ruby." She is over 20 years old and I bought her new. 1954 Guild X-50 dubbed "Black-eyed Susan" due to the finish. I play slide tuned in a modified open G. I have a few other acoustics I play on when I do coffee houses and acoustic shows. I am currently finding a back-up axe for Ruby. That E4 neck is a pain to find! I have a small PA and effect processors one picks up over the years...
