Band to Join.

ABOUT

Well experienced guitarist available for fulltime band and fills. Musically, am interested in anything from 60's to current and most genre's. Have played pop/dance, rock, big band, rockabilly, country, etc. Did the shred thing (grew up with VH, Satch, Rush as influences) and love the music, however, just as interested in classic rock, tribute, blues/country, dance/disco/pop, progressive rock/metal. Study jazz styles, can read charts, but am absolutely no Ben Eunson lol. That said, pretty versatile very open to quite a bit.
Work the day job so prefer band work on Fri/Sat/Sun's, however would be available for weeknight work as well. Please note: not too keen on afternoon summertime outdoor gigs - e.g. Kemah gigs in late afternoon summer, no bueno lol.
Most recent full time band was Tracy Perez Band, and Breakfast at Tiffany's before that (pre covid). They can both be contacted as references.
Know a lot of material, quick learner, can read charts, improvise, good music theory background, can't read notation on the spot quickly, not since I was like 14, and even then... slow, lol).
For some reason I'm not always notified of emails left on this site so have several that were not responded to. Sincere apologies. May also try to reach out to me at id10tgary at gee male
I have a few videos on be and FB. Search be "channel": Hawkins Guitar, or Gary Hawkins on FB.
Thanks! gh
