ABOUT

Let's start the ultimate cover band! Looking to start or join a cover band. I have a day job so I'm available most evenings for practice and weekends for gigs.

I don't have any hang ups or attitude and enjoy playing with all types of musicians. I've been playing 30+ years and still learn things from everyone I play with. I understand how to get repeat gigs and that a cover bands job is to bring in people, play songs they want to hear and most of all--sell more alcohol, and to be entertaining while you do it.
