I recently have found myself to be in a unique position to play music full time for a while. I am looking to make the most out of this opportunity. Covers or originals are fine. I am open to all genres, but I am really not the guy for a metal band. I have pro gear and I will be able to travel. No drugs or drama. My contact information is below. Please feel free to contact me anytime.
