Band to Join.

ABOUT

I Started playing in the 60s went from playing teen clubs to bars to traveling Hotel/Show Bands. Did various USO dates both in and out of USA . Played Lead Guitar with a pretty well known band (Aztec Two-Step) in the North East US playing College and large Stage gigs (including Madison Square Garden, Avery Fischer Hall and the Bottom Line in NYC).
(ampprebid.pastemagazine/articles/2008/03/aztec-two-step-give-it-away2.html)
I decided I wanted to stop traveling so much so cut back on tour performing to mainly local gigs.I ran 2 Recording Studios 1 in NYC and 1 in CT as well as doing live sound for various clubs and functions (which got me really enjoying trad Country). I am looking for a group that performs pretty regularly (mainly but not necessarily only on) weekends and enjoys what they do as well as being enjoyed by audiences..... I enjoy and have played a wide variety of music from 50s/60s to 70s/80s Rock, dance music to Americana and Trad Country.
