ABOUT

I have played in various kinds of rock bands since the 1980s. Metal, punk funk, blues rock; with other influences like motown, reggae, disco. I am looking for a fairly casual situation, I just want to play, and I am not looking for weekly gigs etc. Ideally, I want to do originals and re-imagined covers (playing Born to be Wild as reggae, for instance) in Jam style or prog. But any style is cool as long as we have fun!
