ABOUT

I am looking for a drummer, bassist, and/or guitarist to start a band/music project. I am also open to other instruments such as piano/keyboard, sax, and electro/synth. I'd like to set up some jams and then see how things could progress from there - start out jamming regularly maybe 2 to 3 times/week. Please only respond if you are actually serious about getting together to play soon.

Musical chemistry and creative collaboration is what I'm looking for, so this could start out with just one other musician and then grow as we find more musicians to play with. Or if things take off with only 2 or 3 of us, that's fine too.

My goal is to start a small group to play with, and eventually start playing gigs - I'm mostly interested in playing for fun, even playing gigs for free, but of course I'm open to paid gigs if the opportunities ever come along.

I'm 28, live in Venice, and have been playing guitar for 14 years. I've played lead in numerous bands and projects ranging from hard blues rock, indie/alt rock, punk/hardcore, and a couple jam bands. I am pretty open to musical style. Someone in the age range of 21 to 37 would be ideal, but I'm flexible if we play well together...
