SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Piano, Electronic Music.

ABOUT

I'm seeking be a part of a jamband. Genres including rock, but also possibly bluegrass, funk, reggae, etc.

primary instrument: electric bass, mainly 5-string (about 21 years). I recently started trying out a 6-string.

other instruments: vocals, keyboards, guitars, electronic composition.

I'm looking to be in a band, ultimately. Minimum a trio of guitar, bass, and drums. I *can* sing, but am not a lead singer. I'm hoping the guitarist can sing.

Ideally I'd like to add a 2nd lead guitarist and/or a keyboardist.

I write music. I can record music at home. I can learn songs by ear. I can communicate chords and song structure. Hopefully you are capable of the same.

The first 13 of my tracks are from an electric bluegrass band I was in that was somewhat of a jamband. The next 9 tracks are from another band I was in that was more rock/surf/punk/reggae.
