SEEKINGBand to Join.
I'm 65 years old, I've been playing guitar since I was in my teens.
I've been a studio musician, sideman. lead guitarist in local bands, and solo acoustic folk performer. I have been, but am not presently, a member of the Musician's Union.
I'm former lead guitarist for the Fifth Gear Band, a Brandon based band that broke up in January after 3 years. (It's back together with new personnel.)
Lately, I've been working on vocals, doing a lot of karaoke and home recording. A couple of recordings I made are included with the music above. They are just quick mixes. I play lead guitar and vocals on all but Can't Get Enough of Your Love. That's just singing to a backing track. For the experts, only reverb, compression and eq were used, no vocal enhancements.
I'm open to jamming and possibly playing lead guitar/vocals for a classic rock band. I have a back issue. I can help with loudout and loadin but can't lift the really heavy stuff.
