ABOUT

Currently looking for a bass player for a Dead/Jerry cover band; have the best Dead lead guitar player around with rehearsal space in Chadds Ford. In general, I'm otherwise looking to play drums in a jam band preferably. I'd like to sing background vocals but have bo experience. Looking to practice within 45 minutes of West Chester/Exton area. I'm hoping to play with at least one guitar player (preferably two), a bass player and a keyboardist. I can host afternoon electric jam sessions a couple times a week and lower volume acoustic type jams at night til 9 p.m. or so. I have a recently tuned stand up piano. I'm looking to play in any of the following: Rock Jam band, Classic Rock/Pop cover band, Hard Rock/Metal cover band. As previously mentioned, I'd most like to establish a jam band playing the likes of Phish, Dead, Allmans, Lou Reed, Jack White, Beck, String Cheese, etc. I would love to be in a Ryan Adams cover band. Would love to do a Lou Reed tribute. Also looking to play percussion (Bongos, Congas, Blocks, Chimes, etc) even if it's just shaking an egg.

Influences

Just about everything. My early influences were Classic Rock, Blues, Pop, R&B/Soul then progressed into Metal, Classical, Fusion, Jazz, Adult alternative, Rap/HipHop, etc. I do not dig straight country but, alternative country like Ryan Adams & Lyle Lovett is great. As previously mentioned, I'd like to establish a jam band playing the likes of Phish, Dead, Allmans, Lou Reed, Jack White, Beck, String Cheese, etc. I would love to be in a Ryan Adams cover band; Ryan's entire discography with The Cardinals and solo is fantastic. His musical vision is crystal clear. Check out some RA & The Cardinals on youtube. I love music with great horn & string arrangements. For horns I really appreciate artists like Van Morrison, Frank Zappa, Beck, Cake, Chicago, Galactic, etc. For strings Van Morrison, Ryan Adams, Beatles, Stones, Stevie Wonder. Would love to do a Lou Reed Tribute!
