Influences

Neil Young, Tom Petty, Beatles, Stones, 60's/70's funk and soul, Santana, Blues; anything old and good. Currently working on Rockabilly and 60's soul songs.

I also can play harp on the typical songs - Roadhouse Blues, Shanty, Georgia Satellites, etc.

I sing harmony and lead on songs of my type - Neil Young, Tom Petty, etc. I also enjoy using alternate guitar tunings as well.

Members Of Band

The band has split so at this point, I'd love to find some other folks looking for some informal jamming to see if we can put something new together. I'd love to start with bass, drums, guitar and singer (a strong female voice sells). And if there's a versatile keyboardist, that would be great too. You should be able to sing harmony or occasional lead to mix it up. I have a full time job and a life so I don't want to be gigging twice a week. Every other week is enough but that's on average. If you have members with some stage presence, you can do well. I'm not interested in dive bars that book you 10 to 2am so unless the place is packed, forget it.

I've got over 1100 songs charted out (for myself) with chords, lyrics and arrangements. I've love to do some rockabilly from the 50's, soul and rock from the 60's - 80's. There are some good new songs and I have some of those too. Unless its a great song, I'm not interested in metal, Green, Nickelback, STP, etc. Good blues of any vintage is great. But if you want work, you've got to focus on good danceable tunes as well as doing songs that you can do better than other groups so folks will remember you. Would love some shoreline gigs since those can lead to more lucrative private gigs.
