Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo


Band to Join.


I'm a dad who used to play bass in Chicagoland bands (originals and covers). After a ten year absence (short version: somebody died, then I got married and had kids), I'm looking to get back into the game, preferably in a cover band.

I'm open to pretty much anything except nu metal. Seriously, just don't.

Former smoker. I longer use drugs or drink to excess. Reliable gear and transportation. Former record store employee. Too much of a dork to pass for cool.
