Drums, Vocalist.

ABOUT

I'm looking for form an original rock band with swagger to rock the eff out.

To swagger is “to walk with an air of overbearing self-confidence,” and that, in of itself, is the quintessential aspect of rock ‘n’ roll. Whether it’s the attitude of Aerosmith, Thin Lizzy, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, KISS, Van Halen, or whomever—there is a certain posture and strut that goes hand-in-hand with rock.

That swagger, that confidence, that energy is the quality I’m looking for to front an original band and to further the vision of compiling a rock band with swagger. I’m looking to put together a high-energy rock band that has that swagger.

I’m looking for a singer that fits that description and can help write songs. I prefer a band/team environment where everyone is working together to help achieve a goal/vision. Is this sounds like something you’d be interested in, reach out.

While we will need to play covers to book a lot of venues in New Orleans, those will be of a similar nature to the originals we write. We will pick songs that help us have a cohesive sound.

Gender, sexuality, ethnicity, etc. does not matter to me. I’m looking for the right fit, since we’ll be working together to bring this Frankenstein’s monster of rock ‘n’ roll domination to life to play killer live shows, record albums, and make a mark in the New Orleans music scene—to start.
