SEEKINGBand to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
I am the former lead guitar player for Faith In The Fallen. We were an original hard rock band from the southwestern suburbs of Chicago. Our sound was a mix of several bands like Metallica/Alter Bridge/Tool/Godsmack with a touch of 90's bands like Alice In Chains and Pearl Jam at times. Bands that we shared the stage with include The Pat Travers Band, Hinder, Trapt, Enuff Z'Nuff, Lillian Axe, Tantric, Dangerous Toys, Faster Pussycat, Grim Reaper, Gemini Syndrome, Wayland, Krash Karma, super guitar shredder Angel Vivaldi and many others. As a solo instrumental guitar player, I've opened for Bumblefoot, Michael Angelo Batio, Dave Shankle (Manowar) and Chicago's premier progressive rock band The Cyberiam.
Looking to create a project to perform instrumental music. Would like to play original songs (some that I've come up with using backing tracks but would rather play w/full band, maybe some that you've come up with?), classic hard rock instrumental classics as well as new material we come up with. Think hard rock, a little classic metal/modern metal (no growling, death/grind/whatever core), maybe some hard rocking blues, and maybe a touch of funk thrown in at times. Need advanced bass player, rhythm guitarist and drummer. Contact me (815) 531-7269
