ABOUT

I have been playing in bands and singing oldies, folk-rock, and rock since the early 60s. Have had a recording contract with a major record company. Had the flash of fame back in the day. I love oldies 60s/70s rock but branch out into some bluegrass, and more modern music as well as big band.
You can find a sample of my music on my musicians page at ReverbNation under Bob Porter or The Bob Porter Band.
I would love to meet someone interested in joining or putting together a duo or trio for the fun of it and playing gigs as well. Please be committed to regular practices with the goal of raising goose bumps on folks when they hear us play. If you are looking for strictly a bar band please look elsewhere. I am interested in playing out in live gigs but not just in bars. Making a little money with the music would be a plus.

MY HISTORY:
I have been playing since the Surf Music Era back in the 60's. I played and sang in a professional and recording band back in the day when 60s music was on the top 10 chart. I have played lead guitar in a Church praise band. We played weekly and at charity events as well as Big Springs Jam. I am well versed it polular contemporary Christian songs. Our 4 piece Contemporary Christian / Oldies rock group did alot of 60s oldies and some folk with a mix of other like music. We have done coffee houses and such.
