ABOUT

Fully vaccinated! You MUST be, too! No exceptions.

I'm an older guitarist. Grew up in the 60s and 70s.
I can play rhythm or lead, and sing some.
I like blues, rockabilly, western swing, R&B, some country, Americana, and classic rock. Upbeat, danceable, fun.

Looking for others to get together and jam.
Let's see if we can make pleasing noise together, work up enough tunes to play out.
BTW - Practice happens at home, not during rehearsal.
It should be about the sound we can make together in support of the vocalist/front person.

Needed: bass, keys or second guitar, female vocalist...etc.

Age not an issue, as long as you want to make music, and don't mind hanging with a gray bearded ex-hippy.

Available evenings and weekends to rehearse.
It would be great to play out once or twice a month.

I have considerable band experience, in blues bands, country, and indie rock settings. I sing, but I'm not the guy to sing lead all night. I also sing harmony.

I am quite willing to compromise about instrumentation and personnel.
