ABOUT

We are a husband and wife combo in our mid-50’s. I play lead guitar and sing lead vocals on a few songs (like Wish You Were Here and Mary Jane’s Last Dance). My wife plays bass and sings lead vocals on a variety of songs (like Sweet Home Alabama, Can’t You See, and Summer of ‘69). We both enjoy singing backup vocals as well.

We’re looking for a few other like-minded musicians (with similar taste in music) to form a band. We like a blend of 60’s/70’s classic rock with some (relatively) newer alternative rock. We’re not looking to make money off of this, but would like to form a group of 4-6 folks that would practice a few times per month and maybe play the occasional low-key gig.

We’d like the band to be tight, dynamic and high energy. We would prefer to play fewer songs really well, rather than fake our way through a larger number of songs.

We are looking for a drummer, another guitarist, and keyboardist. If you can sing and/or also play the harmonica, fiddle, or other instruments, all the better. Ideally, we’d like to be able to trade off lead vocals and have lots of harmonizing (much like the Beatles). I’d also like to be able to trade off rhythm, solos and cool guitar licks, like you’d hear with Lynyrd Skynyrd or the way Eric Clapton contributed to While My Guitar Gently Weeps.

We prefer upbeat songs that make folks want to dance (or at least tap a foot). The slower songs we like tend to have a lot of passion and intensity (like Comfortably Numb).

However, as John Lennon said: “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” So we’re flexible - we’re more looking for folks who are into a similar style of music and inspired by the type of sound we’d like to chase.

We live in Mountain View and have a practice room with a small PA, mics and drum set. My wife is fully vaccinated, and I’ll be fully vaccinated by mid-May.

If you’re interested in jamming, please drop us a line. We’d love to hear from you, compare song lists, etc.
