SEEKING

Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.

ABOUT

I'm seeking to either join or form a band to play good paying gig’s at winery’s, fair’s, casino’s and the best club’s in Sacramento, El Dorado & the surrounding Northern California region.

I've got the talent, passion, desire and the background to be part of a band intent on quality & putting on the best show possible

I’m a professional, middle-age male lead singer with vocal ability.

I’m dedicated, have worked with a fantastic vocal coach (Mark Baxter) and I’m also financially secure.

I believe in:

“practice at home”, “rehearse together”, “perform in public”

“best equip + best talent = best music/sound quality”

I’m English/Irish & sing Mc Cartney, Sting, etc. easily, but my vocal range is bigger or stronger than that. I sing well for hours.

I'm mainly into Classic Rock, but I also sing outside this genre. I also practice at home 2-3 per week with my "hard drive" that has over 100,000 songs which makes it easier to learn new songs as well as stay sharp on the ones I need/want to.

I seek a band or musicians who can learn a song if given time.

I'm into:

Quality, Passion, Productivity, Spirituality, Satisfaction & Results

Note: The songs I downloaded were made with my in-home KJ system I use for practice and recorded with an Olympus voice recorder which was placed on my kitchen counter top. I'm a singer, not an "audio specialist" so I apologize in advance for the "less than perfect" recording quality of these songs.
