ABOUT

I'm looking to start a new band playing calypso and reggae. I would just like to start out with three people. I need a lead singer and a guitarist and also a bass player. I am a percussionist. I am from the Bahamas and I would love to play calypso music here in Jacksonville. I had a calypso band in West Palm Beach and Miami in my younger days. We would definitely need to practice 1 to 2 hours a week. If this sounds good to you and you would like to get together with me, leave me a message on my message board. Or send me a email, culmeralbert@gmail.com
