SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm a guitarist/vocalist who likes to play an eclectic blend of blues-influenced music: blues, jump blues, swing, a bit of rockabilly, and R & B. Open to other genres.

I play electric, sing, play a little slide. Get along well with people. No ego issues. Into being a part of the whole. Play because I love the music.

Goal is to create something solid. Making music should be a priority. Not looking to quit my day job, but simply work/play with like-minded individuals.

Looking for a band to join, or another guitar player to jam with.
