ABOUT

Actively looking..new to montgomery area in March 2021

Duo, trio or full band. Played everything from classic rock, alternative, country, Texas blues, 80's hair bands. Love all styles of music and could be interested in start up to actively gigging. No ego here I want to get involved with the right group of people and the music will be easy. I show up well rehearsed as group practice should be time to polish songs not learn them. I uploaded a range of styles and different groups I've played with over the years.

I’d be interested in talking with anyone who want to make quality music and have fun doing it.

I’ve been thinking that full group would be fun to do something like Umphrey’s McGee... Kind of cool and challenging mash ups. Obviously this isn’t my only interest it’s just been on my mind as a fun project band to get rolling and likely no one else in that vein of style around Montgomery area ...

Happy to do a digital demo as well... give me a shout if you have any interest! Let’s see if we’re a match.


Peace

EQUIPMENT

Various mix of pro guitars ie PRS custom 22,Strat 60th anniversary, takamine TAN16C supernatural accoustic. Run direct with fractal audio gear. In ears or stage wedges are good with me, mandolin, ukulele, Yamaha dgx 660 piano, Fractal Audio AX8, Midas M32R digital mixer, alto saxophone, fender banjo, all keys of harmonicas, pro mix of guitar pedals pedals although not really necessary with the Fractal system. Stage lighting and small format KS Audio powered PA hand made bad ass system imported from Germany, not well known in the US but it’s as good as it gets in line with major touring pro grade.
