SEEKINGOther Percussion, Drums, Bass Guitar.
I'm a working screenwriter and director but also an Emmy-Nominated singer-songwriter on the side. I have a rock band I'm trying to revamp and expand. We play all originals. We've recently been playing out as a trio at a coffee house on the west side of LA owned by Bob Dylan, but we're looking for a rhythm section to hook up with. There's lots of my music on my website at chrisgerolmo, so it's easy to find out if this is your kind of material. Listen to "Man on Fire" or "Monsters" to hear what we sound like w/ bass and drums.

Members Of Band
I write, sing, and play mostly acoustic guitar. I have a piano player-heyboardist I've worked with for 5 years, and a lead guitarist I've worked with for two years. We're looking for a drummer and a bass player, and possibly an additional percussionist. But here's the catch. We all have jobs, and don't need to make money from the band. We're ideally looking for other musicians like ourselves- ex-pros or near-pros who are gainfully employed, but wish to be in a band that rehearses on the weekends, and plays live shows every few months, for the exhilaration and joy of it. (We're also sober, fyi.)
We have lots of equipment.
