ABOUT

Played in professional top 40 Dance clubs for years before I got married....Now Im single after 30 years...I miss playing five nights a week and would love to put a few sets together with some others who regard it as something that is a ton of fun but serious. I can keep up with most on 70's & 80's classic rock top 40 songs and love Jammin' Improve rock blues. Best at Hard Rock Blues Leads/fills and Rhythm guitar. Can do strings and synth on keyboard in a pinch, Pink Floyd is my Favorite Band, My major influences are: Gilmore, Gibbons, Trower, Travers, Santana, & recently Bonamassa, Good with dynamics, phrasing and attack, have also played in worship groups at larger Churches. I don't drink Alcohol or indulge in Illegal Drugs, I'm proficient with Harmonies and can front a few songs to give the Lead singer a break. Im used to playing in five piece bands. I have my own equipment (Guitars (Les Paul, SG, Strat, and Acoustic, Amp (Rivera Class A American and English Voiced, EL30 X2 / 12AX7 X5 30 watt) , Chords, SM57 SURE Mic, Mic Stand, pedals (only when required for 80's music) , etc... , Portable Tascam Digital Recording Gear and an old Peavy PA.
