Band to Join.

ABOUT

My background is mainly playing in school bands all the way through college mainly in stage bands. I've been keeping myself active playing for sometime since I graduated college. I fly for American Airlines as a pilot, so my availability can be somewhat of an issue from time to time, but I am dedicated and do practice on my own when I can on trips. I do get unsolicited tips from people time to time while playing (not while flying). My source of playing lately has been jazz standards from fake book with backing tracks. I highly desire to get into playing rock/pop songs from the 1980s or even 90s if applicable. Technically it would be a cover band. My primary instrument is saxophone. My background has general knowledge of chord progressions, theory, and improvisation. I would be a great fit for any band who has the same understanding or more.
