ABOUT

Seasoned, experienced veteran of gigs large to small and everything in between. Headlined large Hall shows, opened for National acts, traveled out of country for gigs. Looking to Jam for fun, and / or gigging / songwriting.

Fair amount of experience in the Studio, although songwriting isn't my strength. Looking to change that with an original project.

Laid Back at practice, serious on stage, light drinker, no drugs, no smoke.

Influences

I played in a well traveled '80s tribute band, Rubix Cubed & alt band, MunkeyFist, so my influences range from Rush to Duran Duran to the Cure to Green Day to Bowling for Soup to Pale Waves.

Looking for either:
Cover band without the usual covers (no Nickleback, Freebird, or Mustang Sally), and steady gigs (not looking to build up a cover band)
or
start an original/cover power pop/alt / synth pop band (Like Material Issue, Fountains of Wayne, Weezer, Barely Pink, Matthew Sweet, Teenage Fanclub, Pale Waves) to write and record.
Or
A Jam band (for fun) playing a fair amount of Rush (it has to be for fun mainly, because, honestly, who's going to want to go see a Rush cover band for 4 sets?)
