SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Been playing bass on and off since my early 20s. I've been playing more seriously in the last 7 years or so after a little break. I'm looking for a band that's just waiting on a bassist. I'm not adverse to putting a project together but it has to happen fast. Not sitting in a basement for years screwing around. I want and need to play out again. I'm pretty laid back and just want to have fun. No time for attitudes and drama. I'm good for a couple beers but nothing more than that and absolutely no drugs. Unless you're a total burnout, I don't care what you do. Background vocals capable. I have all pro gear and reliable transportation. I have a good job so I'm able to contribute to rehearsal space, etc if needed.
