ABOUT

Bass Player with some vocals dependent on song key, range, and fit to my timbre
Played "back in the day" over 25 years ago - Gave it up for college, job, house, kids, life, etc. Picked it up again a few years ago by playing in a work christmas party band - enjoyed that and would like to do more
Developing/re-developing my skills ... ready to go

Have real job as engineering chief plus daily grind responsibilities
Appreciate bandmates with similar real job and daily grind responsibilities - no drugs, some beer, lots of diet pepsi, no "I want to be a rock star" attitudes
I want to learn, have fun, am passionate and committed to excellence
Can do band practice once per week and gig once per month’ish

Passionate about The Beatles, classic/southern rock, etc. but appreciate variety and breadth - it's all about the song
