Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm looking to join or start a smooth jazz / neo-soul band that plays smooth but grooving music like Four80East, CountBasic, Soulive, Down to the Bone, Marc Antoine, Ronny Jordan, Incognito, Chaka Khan, Kem, Maxwell, D'Angelo, Wayman Tisdale, etc. If there isn't one in DFW, let's create one!!
