Band to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

I have played electric bass off and on since high school, but have been concentrating on it fully since 2009. Bass Guitar is my focus. Not that there is anything wrong with this, but I am not a guitarist that picks up a bass now and then, because no one else will, nor do I look at the bass as a stepping stone to playing lead guitar or lead vocals. I have learned about playing drums and guitar, but only for the purpose of being to better understand what they are playing, and in my studies of music theory. I have no aspirations of playing either instrument.

Now that I’ve beat that point into the ground, on to my musical tastes and experience. I've played primarily a mixture of classic and modern rock. My most recent band was a 5-peice, but had played in trios and miss playing in a smaller group Much of my stage experience is from 2014 - 2015 (playing around 40 -50 shows). I was in few bands that were perpetually not ready to gig" prior to that"

I pick up songs quickly, and am not locked in on a narrow range of groups or styles. I do back-up vocals and could do an occasional lead, if necessary. I have decent equipment, a reliable car to haul it around with, a regular job during the week, and keep the commitments I make.
