Our Combined experience has been on Stage and in the Studio.

I have a "RENT FREE" practice studio that is sound reinforced, at my house in Winters.
With in studio Bass Rig and Drum set
The practice area is 24ft x 20ft (Pictures of Studio, in photos)
That's 480sqft of open space and that's plenty of room with absolutely
"NO NEIGHBORS".

/////////: WE PLAY THESE STYLES :\\\\\\\\\
Progressive Rock, Alternative Rock, Hard Rock, Thrash, Metal.

The Guitarist came from the Lynard Skynard tribute band Skynin Lynard, he was with that band from the start in early 2004 and then two years ago (2017) he left the band because had grown tired of playing the same songs/music over and over, and has "No Desire" to play any Lynard Skynard, Georgia Satellites, Etc.. tunes ...
The Drummer and I have played in several bands together over the last 27yrs
We have all our own equipment.

OUR GOAL & FORMULA: is to play covers as well as write new original material to throw into the mix at Gigs and Venues.
That way people can listen to songs they know and plus our original material at the same time.

We're not trying to appeal to the 60-80yr old's that were 20,30, and 40yrs old in the 1970's.
We want to grab the ear of the 20, 30, 40, and 50yr old's of the present year (2020); That's who's packing the Bars, Festivals, and Entertainment Venues & Events of today.

Musical influences and interests we listen too, range from:
Most 90's Rock, Metal, Grunge, Alternative
Most early 2000's to present Rock, Metal, Progressive, and Alternative

!!...NOT LOOKING TO DO THE TYPICAL OVER PLAYED BAR SONG SET LIST'S.. IE.. Lynard Skynard, AC/DC, Black Crows, Tommy Tutone, Etc.
WE'RE STRIVING MORE TOO MIX UP THE GENRE OF SET LIST SONGS AND HAVE FUN DOING IT, PUTTING NEW COVER MUSIC OUT THERE THAT PEOPLE MAY HAVE FORGOTTEN ABOUT and or MAYBE HAVE MOST RECENTLY HAVE HEARD
(The all caps are not me yelling; Just strongly emphasizing the fact that we're not doing the same songs a 100+ other gigging bands in the area/region are playing for the last 30-40 years)

The focus first will be learning a few covers to get everyone on the same page and understand each other’s way of learning music and creativity.

We're in to doing covers by more current bands; Five Finger Death Punch, Kings Of Leon, Weezer, Ugly Kid Joe, Chevelle, Seether, Counting Crows, Fuel, Helmet, My Darkest Days, Incubus, Puddle of Mudd, etc..

::::::::::SONGLIST::::::::::
{ The Songlist below is exactly how we start each practice.}
{ We ask that you start learning the first song and then work your way down the list.}

Continuing to work on more.......??????

***LOOKING TO DOING COVERS AS WELL AS ORIGINALS***
We like to do Originals as well as Covers that very from: Soft Rock, Rock, Hard Rock, Thrash, Metal.

Eventually we would be writing original music, after we lock all the cover songs down. I along with the others that are in the band, will initiate and or share Ideas for some of as yet un-written material and songs that we will all collaborate on.

Thanks for reading.
