ABOUT

Looking for 'hobby band' mates...send a note to jrmock (at) att (dot) net

Currently playing with an great jazz bass player.

I've been in bands off and on for years. Hoping to find others who have fun playing, and want to get loud once a week or so! With the right group of people, I'd love to be in the band that opens for other bands, start early, leave early.

Few years ago we put together a couple of sets and played at the Fat Frogg in Elon, had a great time, playing a mix of electric blues/rock with Jazz bass solos, mostly Hendrix, Chili Peppers and Zeppilin stuff.

Considering new funk groove type project, think Soulive, Lettuce stuff.

Usually pretty flexible, available most nights and weekend afternoons, even on short notice, have beer, will travel.

I'm a Hendrix wannabe, and love those deep cuts from the Hendrix later albums, heavy blues rock oriented stuff and great funk grooves.

Been trying to get in touch with the following guys on BandMix...
- scott1267172- Elon
- kj566122 - Burlington
- wallace1200701 - Burlington
- randy570384 - Hillsborough
