SEEKING

Band to Join, Bass Guitar, Vocalist - Tenor, Vocalist.

ABOUT

** Currently seeking vocalist and bass guitarist to complete a 70s hard rock / 80s metal cover band. Have two guitarist, PA, practice space, marketing materials and working set list. Your desires must align with the stated genre. This project is not meant to be a jukebox exercise; we want to play familiar songs, but not the ones every other cover band plays. Near-term goal is to gig by early fall at local venues. Don't have time for drama or BS. Email me for details at andyman1970 <at> <dot> com ***

I've played for 30 years and still try to practice everyday. I have professional gear and transport. I also have a family, a professional career with a fairly predictable schedule so I'm looking to get back into recreational gigging. 1-2 gigs per month would be ideal. I have been professionally trained via lessons for many years, and can read music. More importantly, I'm told I have good meter and I tend to practice with a metronome at least twice a week 'cause no one is perfect.

I'm told I have an immense music library as I've been collecting for many years. I'm very confident in my skills and have demonstrated repeatedly that I can easily nail down anything in a few minutes.

Let me be clear - I'm very committed to doing this for fun.

Primarily 70s 80s and some 90s rock with strong influences from Queen, Rush, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Deep Purple, Dream Theater, UFO, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Meat Loaf, Iron Maiden, Whitesnake, Journey, The Tubes, Rolling Stones you get the idea.....

I'm not really interested in grunge / alternative. I can play it, but I have no passion for it whatsoever.
