Band to Join.


I played in "The Pretty PleaS" (://./theprettypleas) until we split up due to our guitarist/lead singer moving to CA. I have been on a musical hiatus since then, but want to get back on stage. With TPP I played bass, wrote songs, sang lead vocals on my songs and backups on the others, and recorded bass & lead guitars. We played quite a few shows in the NY/NJ area, including twice at Maxwell's in Hoboken (with a sold-out show on a Saturday night), Arlene's Grocery, etc etc... On the songs I sing on Lesson I, Your Song, and History of War.

Before that, back when I was in college, I used to be in 3 bands. One of them (The FartKnockers) I was lead singer, guitar player and writter. We played punk/ska with influences from the Offspring, Ska-P (band from Spain), among many others. I played drums and backup singing with "Trinity", and lead guitar on a jam band (that never actually received a name). I played about 20 concerts with TFK and Trinity, for crowds of up to 700 people. I also reached a rock contest semi-finals with The FartKnockers.
