ABOUT

63 year old guitarist/singer, with a focus on acoustic guitar/singing, that also likes to rock it out. Technically it’s really singing and some kind of instrument accompaniment. I presently help start and lead open mic and group jams. I also play electric guitar, bass, cajon, keyboard, mandolin and ukulele. I enjoy mixing it up with other musicians, either in support or lead position and it really doesn’t matter what instrument I’m playing, although the guitar is my main instrument. Give me an excuse to get a Nord! I could use someone that can take a song into an even better or higher vibe and learn to harmonize with me and vice versa. I already can lead a conga line, dancing while I sing and play. I’m trying to get audience participation and could also use help. Song writing is encouraged. Goal is jam and develop a band, but a duet also works. Gigs are optional also.

Rock, country rock. The bands I play the most cover songs to are, the Eagles and Tom Petty. Same token, I’m open, especially if I'm in support role and I’m always learning some new song in many different voices.
