ABOUT

Hey!

When this virus thing has settled down and we can get together again, here's what I want to do:

Western Swing, Rockabilly, Blues, R&B!

A band that is an eclectic blend of blues-influenced music energetic, danceable, and fun. I tend to like familiar sounding, lesser-known material.

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

I have a good command of chords and basic music theory. I think a band has to gel on a personal level as well as musically. The "sum is greater that the parts" is my philosophy.

Ideal situation would be a 4-5 piece: guitar, bass, drums, keys, sax, vocals. Open to other instruments or configurations. Pedal steel or lap steel, for instance. Looking to practice regularly, and play out once a month.

Email me on BM or at tjkenn at g mail dot com.
