ABOUT

I'm seeking folks whose musical interests overlap with mine to have fun and make a few bucks with playing music we love. If we start something from scratch, we can sharpen our focus once we see where our interests overlap, but my own interests include, among other stuff, soul music and earlier R&B; jazz; gospel; early rock and roll; blues; and old country music. I'm also a fan of NRBQ, Rockpile, the Blasters, the Detroit Cobras, Buddy Miller and Mike Farris.

If Bandmix didn't make you limit yourself to four genres, I would also have checked Americana and Cover/Tribute.

Influences

Vocally, Ray Charles, most definitely. Beyond that, too many others to list, so I'll leave it at that.

Instrumentally, another long list of people on a variety of instruments, with Little Sonny at the top of it (the funkiest harp player I've ever heard).
