Band to Join.

ABOUT

Looking for a working cover band that needs a bass player with background vocals and enjoys performing classic/contemporary rock...possible fill-in if needed. I have solid grooves, stage experience, professional equipment, backing vocals, team player and love to play out because that's where the real fun I$ at. I have held down the bottom end with many bands in SWFL including Moon Child, Bad Latitude, Hester Prynn, Adrenalin Junkies, Oddisee, Groove Tube, and Wyldeside. I was also the bass player in bands up in Chicago before moving to Cape Coral in 2008. Let's talk...

I'm also a computer graphics artist that designs creative business cards, flyers, posters, banners, promo material, and pages. I can make your band look cool AND provide the solid bottom end in the rhythm section...that rocks with an edge!

You can contact me by e-mail: gordoncwhite at hot mail dot com...or call/text me at (847) 414-5015 (this is my FLORIDA phone number) (Eight Four Seven) Four One Four - Five Zero One Five....Thanks!
