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!

I have a Keith Roscoe 5-string electric and a Spector 5 as well. I use a Carvin stack with 2x 10 cab on top of a single 15. I use a Boss ME-50B device for tuning, compression and effects.
Mr Right Track number: 1 Year: 2000 Album: One Nation Under Dog Genre: Other
I wrote the music for this tune. The idea was to infuse an R'n'B feel into a rock song.
Feel Me Track number: 2 Year: 2000 Album: One Nation Under Dog Genre: Alternative
This one is a more straight ahead rocker, although I am slapping the strings with my fingers on the chorus. Again, I wrote the music, Notice the single measure of 2/4 time coming out of the chorus.
