Dave Perry


Band to Join.


I have a good deal of stage experience playing and touring with my old band. After being out of the music scene for a while, I recently joined a band as a replacement bass player. I did a couple of gigs and some studio work for an upcoming album. However, the founder of the band has decided to relocate.

I was one of the founders of Echoes Farm in the mid 80's to early 90's. We played up and down the East Coast from New York to Florida, and headed west through Ohio and Alabama, averaging 150 shows per year.

My two main influences are Phil Lesh and John Entwistle. Musical influences include The Allman Bros, Little Feat, David Lindley, Frank Zappa, Los Lobos, Phish. I'm looking to play highly improvisational electric (and eclectic) music with a clean, large, sound and wide dynamic rage. I'm willing to explore new genres as long as improvisation is involved. Original music and covers. Big loud 5 string bass. Would love to find a drummer, keys, guitar, one of each. I have dependable, professional gear.

I have kids so my schedule is limited and am looking to do this for fun and to play out locally. I'm serious about rehearsals being fun and productive and I don't have time for youngsters who want to get loaded and laid (or grown ups for that matter).


Let me know who's interested.
