ABOUT

"Monty Naffke has relentlessly sought out others who share
his passion for the powerful, blues based, British and American Blues/Southern/Rock music that has been the soundtrack of his life since early on - Allman Brothers, Clapton, BB King, Santana, ZZ Top, Stevie Ray and Pink Floyd to name just a few.

Monty Naffke has been living and loving life here in the mountains of Western North Carolina since moving here from Florida in 2009 with his wife Melanie and their 2 children~ Monty and Molly."

~~~~ SEEKING: this section currently on hold ~~~~ Seeking musician who: 1) Wants to perform 1 or 2 times per month - SOON. 2) Tight Sets which REQUIRE consistent weekly rehearsals 3) Does not need to pursue financial reward as a primary motivation. If you are serious about enjoying the PROCESS at this point in your musical life (been there - through all the B.S.!) Call 828-772-1992 and lets get going ~~~ I love blues based rock guitar - look at my influences! I am 61 years young, have been playing around with music for 40 years - just got more serious in the last few. Don't read music, learn strictly by ear (very accurately), tab and other musicians.
