Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm a 60-odd year old guy looking for a band to play with, either gigs or for fun. I'm free a lot during the day and most evenings and weekends. Not sure what the various degrees of committed are - I turn up for gigs & practices, don't mind travelling up to 100 miles for a gig and, if the opportunity arose to turn pro in and around Asheville, I'd jump at it. On the other hand, I'm equally happy to get together once a week to bash out some music in someone's basement.
