Looking to join/form Americana/AltCountry band. I play bass and noodle around on guitar. I am a recent transplant to the Nashville area from Kansas City (not as a pro musician but as a professor). Not looking to get rich, just have fun. But on the other hand, money is good too. Mainly into americana/alt country and looking for a sound of the Old 97s crossed with Willie Nelson, Social Distortion, and John Doe with a healthy sprinking of Neil Young and Neko Case. Yeah, figure that one out.
