SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am looking for folks that would like to play blues-guitar players, horn players and keyboard players. Even some like minded folks that just want to get together tojam and see where it goes. Or I am looking for a band in need of a blues drummer.
I am a solid groove and blues drummer looking for a band that plays the "real" blues.... Keb Mo, Little Walter, Taj, Walter Trout, Robin Trower, Albert Collins, Eric Clapton, Muddy, Howlin, B.B. King, Albert King, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, JJ Cale, John Mayall, Gary Moore, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, Bonnie Rait, and the list goes on and on. Also, I would entertain playing classic country. I am not looking for a southern rock situation, or a tribute band. Again, I am looking for a real blues situation, classic country or a combination of both. I live in Ellijay but do not have a problem travelling. I can be called or text @404-867-8514.

Influences

Just about anything from the 50's through the mid-late 70's . But very much into early blues. Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Little Walter.Old country will work also. I am very adaptive. No interest in hip hop or heavy metal. John Bonham or Keith Moon, I am not.
Dino Danelli, drummer for the Rascals was my main influence, followed up by Buddy Rich and Krupa, Motown/Soul redux and classic C&W and real R&B.
Bonnie Rait, Van Morrison. Steve Winwood. In general, there is so much great music to be played.

Shure drum mics with overhead condensers. Boom stands. 8 channel mixer with phantom power. I also have a smaller Yamaha cocktail or bop kit that cannot come close to matching "that great Gretsch sound"
