**** Always interested in another guitarist or even a multi-instrumentalist. If you think you fit one of these categories I would love to hear from you.****

*** I am gigging!!! If you would like to play gigs contact me, I am always looking for players. Contact me if you think you can fill a spot***

I have been playing music in some form or fashion for about 30 years. i have been in several rock / cover bands but I'm looking for something different. Now I play music that has its roots in classic country that is commonly known as Outlaw or Texas Country, pretty much anything prior to today's country with maybe some new alternative country thrown in. I'm looking for like minded players who can jam once a week or so. Again I am gigging and have numerous gigs lined up, contact me ASAP if you would like to play. I always have room for good musicians. Drop me a line at jsb0671 at dot com.

You name it and I have it. Guitars, amps, microphones, stage monitors, stage speakers, subs, PA, drums, bass guitars, mic stands, basically anything needed to play small to medium gigs.

My current sound system consist of a Behringer 18 channel digital mixer, power PV115D powered speakers, PVXP powered subs. I use in ear monitors but have some floor monitors available.

My personal equipment consist of, Fender Telecasters, Stratocaster, a Les Paul, Vox Amp, Peavey Amp, Yairi Acoustic, Shure Beta 87a Mic, Michael Kelly Mandolin, Oskar Lee Harmonicas. Plus more pedals than I can count.

I'm Definitely a pedal junkie. Although I keep very few on a peddleboard, I have dozens of pedals. currently I have about 6 or 7 on my pedaltrain now including Wampler Compressor, Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive, MXR Phase 90, TC Electronic HOF Reverb, TC Electronic Flashback Delay, and a MXR Analog Delay.
