ABOUT

Greetings & Salutations - Harold here - I AM LOOKING FOR A BAND!! Either Starting one or joining one here in the Huntsville AL area. I PLAY BASS (guitar too) & COMPOSE!! I just returned to Alabama from California; moved to Huntsville for a new job. Ready to play some music. Especially music that glorifies God; my Christian faith is very important to me.
First & foremost - I want to play some music. The rest is mostly details.
I want to do original and innovative music; things that are challenging, unorthodox, and lyrically thought provoking-good "stream of consciousness" type material......along the lines of Opeth, Yes, Rush, Nightwish, Kamelot, Epica, Pink Floyd, Queensryche.
Also interested in learning about new styles - its always about growing and learning new things musically.
Here lately I have developed a desire to play Southern Rock , far out Jazz, and/or "Jam Band" style material in the style of the Allman Bros. Band, Return to Forever and/or the Grateful Dead. To reiterate -- its all about new stuff, new musical experiences.
