ABOUT

I'm late 40's responsible/professional type, replete with mortgage, kids, etc. I'm a comfortable guitar player and can find a place to fit in most situations, and I'm pretty good company in general, preferring above all else to laugh and enjoy myself. I did a bit of the 'open mic acoustic duo' thing, played bass in an all-original alt-rock somethingoranother, and am currently playing semi-regularly with two sets of folks with similar backgrounds. I'm down to jam with anyone.... picolo, kettle drum, bagpipes, I don't care. I'll try anything once. I'm not necessarily looking to join a working band and gig out every week to help pay the mortgage, but a pick-up every now and then with folks of good company, as the entering argument, is my kind of thing. I've got some videos on be under the clever moniker "Bruxeez" and another channel using my name, Jason Brooks. s://./channel/UCJ9HwnpuyUd6mYyicQcwm2A

EQUIPMENT

From custom Martin's that are reluctant to leave the house to sup'ed up El Cheapo's that are made to take a thrashin', I've got more than enough gear to cover just about every musical category I'd ever want to play in, plus a little bit of outboard gear, recording equip, a few portable PA systems, several amps, pedalboards, mixers, and all the crap-n-cables that goes along with it.
