SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

My greatest strength is my songwriting, but a close second is electric lead/rhythm guitar which is what I'm mostly known for. My lead voice is unique.....best for alternative and Americana.
I gig sometimes doing covers as an acoustic guitarist/singer. Most recently, I've been touring with the "Just Imagine" show (a John Lennon tribute) for the last three years, but that show only plays sporadically.
My ideal is to create a musical group where there are multiple, featured lead vocalists to create (ala The Band, Beach Boys, Beatles) doing original music. OR, I'm simply available to gig doing just about any style of music as long as it's done up to professional standards. Cover bands, tribute bands are fine. Admittedly, I'm 64 years old, but I'm in good shape and can pass for being much younger. I've still got a lot to say musically.

Influences

Songwriting influences.....I write catchy, strong melodies so 60's/70's music and Broadway would be my main influences.

As an guitarist,I'm more blues and rock player than jazz or country. As a young man, I played in power trios, but I've long since steered away from that flashy thing and really go for trying to just play tasty stuff.
