SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm a semi-professional (strong chops / attitude, but have a job) looking to join / start professional, working projects.

I play with a few local groups now, we gig greater Charleston at the usual spots. I'm open to new projects. I'm also available as a fill-in.

Funk / Blues Keyboards with an emphasis on B3 organ and Wurlitzer/Clavinet rhythmic fill-in grooves, I also solo (if needed) on Blues Harmonica, B3, Piano, wurlitzer, moog/synth.

Looking to join or start a band. Funk, blues, rock, pop, Reggae or some combination of above.

The songs linked from my soundcloud are songs I produced, wrote, and played all the instruments on, except Rona blues which my son played Drums on in our garage, live recording of the drums and slide guitar, with overdubs.

For party band links, I don't have a lot of video (because who wants to watch video of a local party band? !! but below are a few links)

Various links to me playing with cover/blues bands:

Interested in two things:
1. being a reliable part of a solid band that plays out around Charleston
2. being part of a band that develops original songs and plays out around town, potentially with a mix of originals and select covers.
