ABOUT

Have played in bands on-and-off since age 16 (1986), for fun, some with gigs (about 30 gigs), some just to jam. Have family and busy full time job, so this is my outlet. Committed to 1 band practice a week; evening gig's scheduled in advance, as max for me due to family/work. Overall- looking to have FUN and play music with other people who enjoy what they're playing - The style of music is not as important to me: I've had as good a vibe playing Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams' and Chick Corea's 'The Passage" as I've had playing ZZ Top's La Grange - what matters is whether the band is connected, playing in tune/in time and having fun.
