ABOUT

I'm a guitarist, mandolinist and vocalist looking to pull together a versatile group of musicians for a mostly original project. (That’s not the actual name of the band)

Ideally it would be an electric first band but with the versatility to play acoustic sets similar to Grateful Dead, Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, etc.

Looking for bassist, drummer, and keyboardist. Harmony singing ability is a huge plus. Multi-instrumentalists would be ideal as the acoustic sets will have a bluegrass influence. Banjo, harmonica, guitar playing ability also pluses. A bassist that can play upright bass would be great.

Styles that you'd need to be comfortable with are rock, blues, country, bluegrass, folk, funk, reggae, and probably others. Improvisation ability is a must as some songs will have extended jams with dynamic builds. If you're familiar with Phish, there will be some of that type of influence in the structure of the songs and instrumentals while we probably won't be covering them.

I live in West LA and if you think this could be your wheelhouse send me a message with a couple of sound clips or media. If we're on the right track, we'll get together and do a one on one session, we can jam a bit and I can show you a few songs.

Members Of Band

This is a new project, but I have around 10 original songs that I’d like to produce with a band and start booking gigs with as soon as possible. I have a pretty specific vision of how to market it, have relationships with potential managers, and touring bands that would welcome us to open.
