ABOUT

Greetings & Salutations - Harold here. Please check my videos and audio - some serious BASS FACE in those videos.........

I am seeking to start or join a band here in the Huntsville AL area. The functional word here in BAND - with input from all members.

I like most styles of music, some I like more than others. I am up to play just about anything.

I believe in a strong work ethic on this, where music is more than a hobby. I prefer originals, but I am not averse to some covers. I believe in having good gear - because that shows where your priorities are.

My favorite styles are: Progressive Rock (Yes, Rush), Heavy Progressive (Dream Theater, Opeth), Heavy Rock/Metal (Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath), Power Metal (Helloween, Nightwish, Kamelot), Classic Rock (Cream/Blind Faith, Deep Purple, The Who, Led Zeppelin), Southern Rock (Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackfoot), and "Jam Bands" (Grateful Dead). I'd also really REALLY like to get into playing some modern jazz, some really experimental stuff.

No bull, no attitudes, no "only this and none of that."

Let's play some music!!
