SEEKINGBand to Join.
The band I gig with the most is Coulda Woulda Shoulda and I've been with them since 2011 playing venues across west Michigan. We are a fun band that will get your party, tavern, bar, or other event jumping with songs spanning many decades.
I also write and performing with the Indie/Pop band Saltmine Canary. We found our drummer here on BandMix and we recorded a five song EP that can be found on our and Reverbnation pages (search for Saltmine Canary).
I have five years experience in a Classic Rock cover band playing venues across west Michigan. When we recorded an album of original material I wrote five of the songs that made it on the CD. Before that I have played guitar and bass in community theater productions, church services, weddings, and with friends.
Of the songs I've posted I played all of the guitar and bass parts on "Lifted" and "Latency." The song "Bust" was one I wrote and recorded as a part of the band Signal Trip, and I play the lead guitar on that song.
I am available for other projects. If your Pop/Indie/Alternative/Rock band is focusing on originals and is looking for a guitar player, or an additional guitar player, feel free to contact me here or at jimbayes at dot com. Maybe something came up and your guitar player can't play a gig and your band doesn't want to cancel and you need somebody to sub, let me know. I can pick up songs quickly and I'm willing to blend in with other musicians. So if you need a guitar player for a short time I am professional and drama-free. It could be fun to contribute to your project. Are you recording demo songs and need a guitar player to add a track to fill out the sound? I have some recording experience, so feel free to contact me at "jimbayes at dot com."

This instrumental started off as a lullaby that I wrote for my daughter.

Signal Trip - Bust
Signal Trip - Bust Year: 2008 Album: Signal Trip Genre: Alternative
This song was different from the other four I wrote on Signal Trip's full length album, released in 2008. Everyone really put their all into this recording and it features Pat Piechocki on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Kristine Waide on bass and backup vocals, Kevin Schaefer on drums, Jo Weir on backup vocals, and me on rhythm and lead guitars.
