ABOUT

I'm looking to form or join a band and start playing regularly again. Classic Rock, Pop style. I have two trains of thought, one would be a Billy Joel tribute band. IF I was able to join or form a band that did this I'd absolutely love it. There's just something about the songs that brings out the best of me musically. If that route doesn't gain traction then I'd like to play Classic Rock music that people know. If you're in the Atlanta area think 97.1 The River. I'm very versatile and dynamic, I'm not a metronome, you won't have the same intensity song to song. Rock songs need a punch, blues songs need to groove, pop songs need to bounce.
