Band to Join, Vocalist - Soprano, Vocalist - Alto.

ABOUT

I have played guitar (lead & rhythm, and also some bass) in numerous working bands since I was 19. Back then we played 5-6 nights/week. Don't currently have another job so there's plenty of time to rehearse & play gigs.

Early on, I played guitar in SNC jazz band, Good Times (country), Chaz (R&B, pop, rock), Score Four (R&B, pop, rock, jazz), played bass in Slo Ryde (rock, southern rock, blues rock), moved to Denver for awhile and played guitar in Estes (variety). Last band was a local trio (guitar, keyboards, drums) called Exit (variety) that played 4-6 times/month for 8+ years. Most recently played guitar in a classy duo (female vocals, acoustic guitar) called Soulager (adult popular, rock, jazz/Latin, blues, R&B, country and folk) that played about 3 times/month for almost 5 years. The videos and cover tunes uploaded in the Music section are from that duo.

I can sing background and have experience arranging music (songs, medleys and vocals) and running FOH sound from onstage. I like variety including R&B, rock, jazz, Latin, funk, soul, classical, folk, crossover country and bluesy tunes.

Would like to join or start a music project (duo or larger) that plays 3 times/month or more.

EQUIPMENT

All the usual stuff you would expect; but this is unusual... Designed and built a power supply for my guitar pedals. It has 8 negative-tip ports with individually adjustable voltages (from 1 to 21 volts). Also has a built-in voltmeter with a port selector knob. Also designed and built a JFET transistor-based preamp in pedal format for electric guitar. It runs off 2 9-volt batteries or AC adaptor from 7-20 volts. Almost done building a 2-level guitar-pedal board. Currently prototyping a tube-based preamp using tubes that were originally designed for cascode-style circuits in the 1930s and eventually used in radios & then tv sets.
