ABOUT

I'm a 48-year-old seasoned rock guitarist with vocals/singing ability in the greater Annapolis, Maryland area. I'm professional, organized, dependable/reliable, dedicated and practice hard--I do my homework show to rehearsal prepared. I have been in few gigging bands in the past ten years, so I am no greenhorn to the stage. Over the last year during COVID, I created a virtual band that jams and records weekly called The IP Rockers, please check us out https://www.facebook.com/TheIPRockers/

I have professional gigging gear, as well as sound setup, PA system, stage lights, recording gear etc. I play both rhythm and lead and some slide guitar, harmonica and vocals. I have fronted two three-piece bands in my past. I have played a lot of 70s classic rock, some dance songs, and 90s/2000 heavy/alternative rock. I am not into southern rock. I also love playing 90’s ALT and grunge rock—probably one of my favorites as I can sing a lot of STP, Alice in Chains etc.

I am looking for a regular weekly fun and drama-free band practice situation as well as getting out and playing for an audience monthly. While paying gigs are great, it's not necessary; as I am mainly looking for fun and the enjoyment of making some good rock music. Location is key, I am not looking to drive more than 40-minutes for weekly band practice.

If you're a fun group, practice weekly, drama free, and in need a passionate and dedicated rock guitarist, please contact me and let's see if we can gel and the chemistry works. When you reply, please include your current working set list. I can provide you with recent recordings and videos of me playing upon request.
