SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar.

ABOUT

Played pro in late 60’s, rock, blues, acoustical. Had studio only Blues band x23y. Tenor, sang in choirs, some very amateur musical theatre. Mainly focused on fingerstyle last 15 - solid fingerpicker. Been Travis Picking for 50 y. Folk; Some Jazz.
Have day job 3 days a week, Interested in playing local venues only
Would like to hook up with experienced players who are also vocalists/good harmonizers. Posted a lot of blues tunes just ‘cause I had ‘em on hand. I played most of the instruments on the tracks: Lead, rhythm, acoustical, bass, harmonica, dobro, keyboards.
Top item on my bucket list is to croak during a performance and only give up my guitar when someone pries it from my dead cold hands.
