ABOUT

I'm a 30-year veteran live performer that has worked extensively here in the US, and in Asia and Europe. Anyone who makes a living this way doesn't need a recap of what last year was like. I play a variety of instruments very competently, but my main talent is as a vocalist and that's what I get paid for. I am more than ready NOW to get back to doing what I know how to do. While I'm certainly open to joining a band, the prevailing wisdom among colleagues of mine is that it will be a little more realistic to book acts with less people, for obvious reasons. Historically, I've always worked with at least a 3-piece band, but I have always wanted to go out with only a pianist that has amazing chops, and of course, if you are ready to get back on that stage, I want to hear from you..

EQUIPMENT

I'm a vocalist. When I play guitar onstage, it's always Gibson, but I'm not looking for work as a guitarist. And I don't need an expensive mic to sound good. In fact I prefer the cheaper ones..by the way, Bandmix, I'll use this field to comment on the question below..."over 100" is the maximum average number of gigs your members have played? How about thousands? Thousands and thousands? This is a site for pros, right?
