ABOUT

Pro sideman,seeks 3 or 4 piece to round out.One nighters ok.Don't need a long term commitment to go to work.A lot of my work is subbing for other band members that can't make a gig.I'm not taking their job,I'm just filling in ,in their absence. I can take every other break on a different instrument,or stay all set on any one .I sing backup, don't smoke ,don't drink ,I just pick .I can work on the fly. I can twin or harmonize your lead, you pick what you want to hear.Don't turn down a gig because you can't all be there, hire a sideman. 214-914-0117 leave message 48 hr. notice is nice, but if it's important, I could do less.I promise I won't steal your stage,merely filling in the background,and extra lead work, to make you sound better.I have a wide range of musical expertise,and at minimum,a couple of hours with me will expand your groups horizon. ASCAP member seeking deal or management. I will show up early,set up five instruments,line out to your PA, and make your 4 piece sound like 9.All I need is a setlist, with keys to go to work.Otherwise, it's just an open jam session.And I'll pick every one of you under the table.I know. I've seen me do it.I'll be the last man playing , when the sun comes up.Trust me on this.It's not about ego, it's about endurance.I only ask one thing. That you stay sober on stage, while working.What you do on your own time is your business.But band time is company time, and you/we need to treat this as a business ,if you/we are to succeed.Otherwise, your basically playing for drinks, and I won't stay with you.I will work with alcoholics only once.So make it your big one.
