Bing Bang


I'm looking to help form a small, leaderless, democratically run folk rock group to give new arrangements to songs that sound 100 years old. The band goal would not be bar gigs or fame & fortune but some quality festival and benefit shows. I've played with some great professionals in genres such as symphonic, jazz, blues, folk & rock. I'd like to incorporate elements of each of these forms (and more) into a unique sound. I'm not seeking chops monsters, just folks who can play simply with competence & conviction. I seek a guitarist and either a violin, cello or viola player, possibly with vocal ability, to join me. If needed, a singer could be sought once some instrumentals are down. Please call 415-260-8754 and leave a message if interested.
