SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Drums, Trumpet, Saxophone, Keyboard, Trombone.
After a 35 year hiatus, I began playing bass guitar again for the love of the music! Wow, Cannot believe the last time I played was in 1971! Well I called up my guitar buddy Doug, from our old band "SWEET MAMA" (kinda like the Blues Brothers movie) when Elwood calls up his old band members and said: I'm putting the band back to together, are ya in? Well in 2002, we assembled a 7 piece, classic rock-n-roll band named "GARFISH" after my childhood nickname and gigging 1-2 times per month!
As a old wise man said to me in a cynical voice (and you know who you are) "You have got a lot of BALLS trying to start playing in a band again after being away from it all those years"! Well as the saying goes: REST NOT! Life is sweeping by; Go and dare before you die! I did and having a great time performing in front of enthusiastic audiences! Rock On!
Currently playing local North Shore club circuit. For more info visit: facebook.com/garfishband
