ABOUT

Like most, I played as a kid 16 thru 19 in a local band and then life happened. Picked up the sticks again about 15 years ago and took some lessons to learn and read music notation. I play by ear and am a solid timekeeper.

No fancy chops here, I'm not a technician. I play the song, not for the showmanship. I finished an 11-month (12/21/2017) gig with Off The Record - https://www.facebook.com/OTRBANDNY1/?ref=br_rs a classic rock cover band. Not happy with the band's future vision. I also occasionally fill in for a group of guys I grew up with 50 years ago (Yikes!)

I'm always looking for new opportunities to better my playing and up my game, so If you're a band looking for a solid and reliable timekeeper, I'll be happy to audition for you. Would love to do more of a Blues type act or even a Mowtown Tribute act. NO CLASSIC ROCK PLEASE! If you're wondering, I'm 68 years old.

I'm considering a startup which would cover more R&B / Blues Styles. Ideally, think Robert Cray, Stevie Ray, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Clapton type covers. Looking for like-minded players who enjoy that genre. I am not into the classic rock scene, so If this sounds like something you would consider, we can book a couple of hours at Fenix studios to see if it's feasible. No pressure, If it's not to your liking, we shake and move on!

P.S.- No Prima Donna's or Rock Stars please, just a nice friendly meeting of like-minded serious players. You must be able to commit the time to this project if interested! If you're just looking to casually "JAM", this is not for you. Not looking to put a "garage-band" together.

Regards,
Bob.
