I am looking to get together with various musicians in the Newport, RI and South Shore, MA area. My top options can be an original hard rock band with an experimental bent or a dance music cover band.

Always changing over time. It started with my mother, but she wouldn't let me touch her nylon string acoustic until I was 11. I can't really pin my influences on a short list of bands, just a few examples reflecting my tastes. In the 1980's it was Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. In high school it was classic rock (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, etc.) In the 1990's it became groove-oriented alternative (311 before they got really famous and the Red Hot Chili Peppers). Nowadays "post rock" and various unsinged bands I find on social media that's keeping me going.

I've come a long way from the days when I could only afford old beat up equipment, but I still believe good musicians can find their own sound when they are budget conscious.
