Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Harmonica, Mandolin, Dobro, Steel guitar.


I would prefer getting into a jam band - like situation. I also am interested in getting involved in original music concepts. I am retired from typical day labor and have plenty of time to rehearse and get a band together. I have plenty of my own equipment, have a good attitude towards rehearsal and backing up other musicians. I DO NOT have any bad habits (except for coffee). I have very good communication habits. Very flexible and easy going in regards to choices of material - however, I would prefer to hit the bar scene rather than be in a dedicated wedding band. I have 40+ years of experience. I am dedicated to the right group of musicians.

Allman Brothers Band, Widespread Panic, Bob Dylan, Black Crowes, Johnny Winter, early Bob Seger, Eagles, Dan Fogelberg, pretty much anything except heavy metal (you know, that deedly deedly chunka chunka cookie monster vocal stuff) I do like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, and Led Zeppelin though (I don't consider this "heavy metal, but hard rock) and can appreciate obscurities as well as ultra popular stuff.

Members Of Band

I would like to work in a group which consists of a second guitar player, bass, keyboards, male and/or female singers, and a percussion section (double drummers or drummer/percussionist combination would be pretty cool)


I have a large variety of guitars , electric and acoustic. I also have several different amplifiers to fit particular applications.
