Our 4+year-old classic and modern rock cover band The Bassment recently dissolved so I am looking for a new project
I play bass and am looking for a good fit of music type, schedule, location, etc.
Not looking to step into a frequently gigging band because sorry, but I don't have the time to learn a huge new set list in a couple weeks, unless it matches a lot of what I already know (see list below)
So a better fit might be a band that is reconfiguring or a new start up with some pieces in place.
I'd consider doing originals mixed in with covers of the same genre as a way to get started.
I'm an intermediate to advanced player (but not an expert) and I play covers of classic, alternative and roots rock from all decades. A list of songs I have played is below for reference of what I could play quickly, but would like to learn some new songs. Wouldn't mind doing more Roots Rock/Americana but am open to ideas.
I have a professional job and kids so am looking for a laid back but committed situation with others in their 40's and 50's. My preference is to practice every other week and play out every month or 2 not too far from my home in Cheltenham Township.
I can also offer a free fully fit-out practice space with drum kit, PA, keys, amps, etc.
If interested, tell me more about your musical background/interests, location, etc. (videos are great) and I can send you a link to videos and more info from our old band FB page.
