Band to Join.

ABOUT

First off, I do not have a full membership with band mix so if you send me a heads up, please include an email address so that I can respond back.
I'm a proactive musician that is moving to the Phoenix area in May 2021. I want to get a jump on things. I'm mostly looking for a working band who's out playing. Music is 100% of what I am doing right now, so I don't have any distractions. If you want a seasoned musician that has played hundreds of jobs, let me know what you're doing. Again, I will be relocating to the Phoenix area in a few months and I would love to just jump right into a band situation ASAP.

Pro keyboard player and rhythm guitar player available for a working situation. Very seasoned, and have played with a lot of very interesting people throughout my years of music. 40 Years of keyboard playing in 30 years of guitar playing. I also learned to play French horn, cornet, trombone, Viola, cello, drums, and bass guitar. I have my own Studio and write my own material some of which has gotten radio airplay. I like my classic rock, but there's a lot more to making money out there than just playing classic rock. Looking for the right situation to jump into, or that certain singer that wants to start something new.
The first three songs are originals that I wrote, and are copyrighted. The song's posted on here, I played all the instruments on except for the drums, and I had someone else do the lead vocals. I did do some of the backups. The song sour girl, was the only song I did all the vocals on. The original titled, the world gone crazy, I actually put together a video for that. Excuse the watermark but in order to take it out, it would have cost me over $4,000 LOL LOL. The video was just a personal thing and was not intended to be anything for media distribution in a sense. My friends look back on that video and say, wow, you must have seen what was coming in 2020 even though the video just kind of happened that way. Go figure, I did this 6 years ago :-)
I'm at pezdel13 at g mail in case you want to contact me. I've mostly been doing a lot of studio work the past few years due to the job I had. I still do work, mostly over the Internet sending tracks back and forth. As you can tell by the songs, they turned out very well. If you need some studio work, or some tracks you need for a project that you're working on, let me know and send me an email.
