ABOUT

What's up guys! My name is Dan Bauer and I'm a musician local to the Manchester, NH area. I'm a singer-songwriter with an extensive catalog of songs which I can and do regularly perform. Recently, I've been getting the itch to form an actual band and play these songs live as I've intended them to sound (full band as opposed to just acoustic pieces). I truly do think I've written some great tracks and am seeking a bassist and a drummer who are willing and able to play out and practice with some regularity and be a part of something awesome.

Non-music notes: I'm 26, work as a bartender, and mostly make puns and exercise when I don't have my hands around a fretboard. I have no moral objections to drinking/smoking, etc, but if that's not what I'm looking to do in this band. Let's make some dope music, not spend practices 420-blazing it, cool?!

PS: I play guitar, piano, bass, drums, and sing (and rap/produce), but would be performing these songs as a singer, plus either guitarist or pianist (depending on what the given song calls for). It's about a 70/30 guitar:piano split.
