Daniel Polak


Band to Join.


I’m 41 with young kids in activities, work a full time job but still manage to play/practice the guitar every day for a few hours.

I’m looking to join a band in the Naperville/Lisle area. Play Potters, Bev’s, etc, the local Naperville spots. I’ve been playing for 30 years and enjoy trying new stuff out. I’m playing my best atm and excited to try and join a group that’s committed and talented but but don’t take themselves to serious. If you know what I mean…

I can do lead or rhythm guitar and enjoy playing all kinds of music that has a rocking guitar tone. That includes country rock, blues rock, soft rock, hard rock, Alternative Rock, anything with a guitar that has a dirty to really dirty rock tone and I like it :).

Give me a call or shoot me a text - 630-698-8531
