ABOUT

Guitarist seeking available like-minded players for new group/ongoing project.
Along with guitars, bass, & drummer; keyboards, percussion, sax (if possible).
Looking to collaborate and explore some musical chemistry. Ideally, older players (30s - 50s) with an appreciation of influences and a deep interest in creating something unique from our collective musical history.
No set agenda other than to scratch our ongoing musical itch, play well with others, and cultivate the prevailing musicianship.
Alternative arrangements, obscure covers, writing original material, .. all dependent on the participants and their inclinations. A perfect storm is an elusive thing.

Turnkey permanent rehearsal space that's clean, dry, and secure.
