Lookin for people to Jam w/ or start a new side Project.
Hate to be really picky but if we intend to do a handful of Gigs a month I must ask for the following:
*Must be 21+
*Must have own Transportation
*Must have own serious equipment to practice and do Gigs.
*And above all and we can't stress this enough....Must be really serious about wanting to write Music and Performing.
*And must be very versatile and open minded, because we don't like to limit ourselves to just one type of Music.
*Also must be available to practice at least 3x's a week anytime after 6pm on weekedays and Anytime on Weekends.
*Knowledge of Music Theory and how to read it is a Plus, but not required, just gotta have the will and desire to play.
In a nut shell looking for people w/ a good attitude who love to play and write music.
