ABOUT

Local band with local gigs seeks new drummer and rhythm guitar. I sing and I play lead OK, but if you are a good lead player I will play rhythm. Can also switch back and forth. I have a great young keyboard/horn player also. We typically play classic rock from the 60's and 70's with a few other dance tunes thrown in the mix. I have gigs booked up to the end of Dec 2013. My rhythm guitarist and drummer have decided to leave the band and become wedding DJ's..!!! I have a gig in 5 weeks and need to reform the band. All the songs are straight forward classic rock standards. I have "cheat sheets" and need players willing to keep the band going. I love to play and have fun, but there is also work involved in becoming a great band. Please mail to : shillingtones (at)
