ABOUT

I have a home recording / rehearsal space in Port Washington and am building a collective of semi-pro musicians to collaborate on ongoing projects. We've all put our time into various Long Island bar bands and some of us are still active in that scene. But this is meant to be different from that. We want to break out of the constraints of that and play music that is meaningful to us. That could be re-worked covers or originals. We'd like to put some of this out in front of people but not as "yet another classic rock bar band". One plus of this project is I produce MP3's for participants from each session.

I'm a drummer (formerly of Slacker). We have a guitarist / lead vocalist who participates in most projects. We have a handful of guitarists and bass players who rotate through depending on their schedule. We have room for more of both. We would like to add a female vocalist. I would love to add a keyboard player (we have a Yamaha upright grand in the studio.) I would like to work on some projects with cello and violin. Brass would also be welcome (I'd like to try an experiment pairing trombone with lead guitar.)

Influences

All over the map. Beatles figure in pretty heavily as do other seminal classic 60's and 70's acts. But we're also jazzed by more modern and sometime even quirky stuff - Neutral Milk Hotel, for example. Some country creeps in - Johnny Cash, Marshall Tucker, Willie Nelson. We also like to rework 80's numbers. Blues: Clapton, BB king and a host of traditionals like "I put a Spell on You".
