Band to Join.

ABOUT

i Play Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Mandolin and Balalaika well and tinker with Keyboards Harmonica, Banjo, Bass Guitar and Dulcimer, I also sing (baritone range). I play fingerstyle guitar very well.

Although I currently only do solo gigs where I sing and play guitar, I would like to be part of a band situation but only if it is something that looks promising and a situation that allows me to use my potential and play the type of music I enjoy, which is mostly Classic Rock.

I have been in bands that have done only heavy metal and hard rock as well as band situations where I have played only acoustic guitar. It would be ideal for me to do something that is more of a mix instead of one extreme or the other.

I currently have a set list of over 100 cover tunes by over 50 different artists. As stated above, it is mostly Classic Rock. I also have some original material as well. I have done almost 200 gigs with the majority of them being solo acoustic gigs and a good number of them as part of either a duo or trio, I would like to be part of a four or five person band. Any more than that leaves you with very little when splitting up the money and coordinating a regular practice schedule with a lot of people gets to be difficult as well.

I have little tolerance for people who don't learn or practice the material on their own. When someone says that they are going to learn or practice something, I expect them to do so. Otherwise you are wasting everyone else's time.

i also have no desire to get political. Especially while before an audience. Live entertainment should be about entertaining, not alienating yourself from members of your audience.

Most of the recordings I have posted on the Net are just old rehearsal recordings from the past. In those recordings, I am the one singing lead vocals and playing acoustic guitar.

I don't mind auditioning for a band. Just tell me where and when, let me set my stuff up and give me a fair amount of time to play. To find out more about me, you could just run a search on the Net for Bob Crqypoe. You will easily find me with no problem.
