SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Who I am: I’m 46 years old and have been playing for 30 years. I live on the far west side of St. Charles with my family. I’m dedicated, a quick learner and enjoy playing - so I don’t just sit there staring at my kit.

What I want: First and foremost, I'm looking for individuals or a band I can get along with, on and off the stage. I’m at the point where I want to have fun playing covers and possibly doing some originals.. I think the suburbs aren’t really the place for original acts and it seems to me that covers fit better. That being said, I want to be in a fantastic cover band with great musicians who are energetic on stage and are willing to actually entertain the crowd. I want to play well known party songs people can get into - unfortunately that negates some of the stuff I listen to - but not all the crappy, same songs every other cover band plays. I've always thought rocking up some popular pop songs would be cool, too.

Looking to practice once a week in my basement in St Charles and gig once every month or two.

What I listen to: Everything from Goo, Foo, Third Eye, 3 Doors, P!nk, BoDeans, Rise Against, Disturbed, Mellencamp and VH to August Burns Red, Dream Theater, BFMV, Lamb of God, ADTR, and 80's hair metal bands
