ABOUT

Been doing the tribute thing for the fast several years and enjoy it. Lately been fronting a Deep Purple tribute act letting me really stretch our vocally. Was doing Ace in a KISS tribute before that.

Thinking about Peter Frampton tribute. If it's done right it could be awesome. Tone would be the key. Vocally not really stretchering for me, I run on the high end anyhow, but if we were able to capture those tones we would be able to kill it!

Could do KISS again, could do Paul or Ace. ZZ-TOP, Thin Lizzy, Cheap Trick, Iron Maiden. Or just looking for a a band to join if I can find one. Can handle just about anything musically. I know what sells and what works. I love to play and entertain audiences, not myself. Looking to advertise to play events, picnics, biker parties, clubs and things like that.
I had been singing lead in a band for the for a few years, had a great time with these guys but the market for Metal Music is not what is used to be. The last two bands before it I had become the singer/front man by default. I'm comfortable singing lead or backup, can harmonize really well. Looking for music that sells, want to play to full clubs of excited people, I consider myself an entertainer first, so I'm not stuck on one brand/style of music. Voice tends to run on the high end, Steve Perry, Lou Gramm, Sebastian Bach, Been told I'm a dead ringer for Vince Neil (the voice NOT the looks)!
