ABOUT

I'm a fifty-something-year-old keyboardist and backup singer, currently with the band 7Souls (.7soulsband), living in Westminster, MD, with a day gig. I'm primarily a classic, blues, and hard rocker with a wide range of influences, and also play some country, pop, and funk. I am slowly learning to play acoustic guitar, and I can get through a song or two if needed.

My ideal band line-up consists of lead and rhythm guitar, bass, keys, and drums -- the classic 5-piece.

I can be reached through Bandmix's message system, or through the contact page on my personal web site at gerenm dot net

You can hear examples of my playing (and sometimes singing) by accessing the my Music List here on Bandmix. You can hear even more by visiting the music pages on my web site.
