Band to Join, Vocalist, Violin, Banjo, Mandolin, Fiddle, Upright bass.


Hi, I'm Carter and I'm looking to start an original bluegrass/folk band in Des Moines

I believe I have some songs written that could get a crowd up and moving. Looking for bandmates to play live shows with.

I'm more of a songwriter myself with some experience playing live with a punk band while I attended UNI. I'm more of a guitarist than a vocalist so I"m not against someone else singing my songs.

Feel free to check out some of the songs I've written linked on my profile, and see if it might be a right fit.

I'm looking to form a group in the vain of Mumford and Sons. Leaning towards an acoustic sound, "fiddle, mandolin, banjo, piano, upright bass".

It would be awesome to plays gigs in the Des Moines area and see how much success we could achieve. I work full-time and this is more of a side project, not sure how many gigs we could actually get, but I don't think we would need much practice to get up and running.

I think music should be about having fun and meeting new people.
