Derek Walton


Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Keyboard, Piano.


Essentially I'm a very experienced bass player looking to form a fun band to play out once a month, ish. Could be a little higher for festivals and parties. Prefer playing functions over bars.

I have two music projects underway:

First, A brand new band with heavy Country emphasis. We have everyone except a male lead singer to complement our lady Lead singer.

Second, Looking for a Male lead singer and ideally versatile guitarist to join Lady keyboards, Male guitarist, Male drummer and myself forming a mainly 80's pop band. Likely venues would be an hour from Rockford IL.

Past Events

We are in the process of defining the songs we want to play, so now would be a good time to say HI...
