Band to Join.

ABOUT

For the past six years I've been playing with the Big City Dogs, a classic rock and blues band based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We play four to five gigs a month at local clubs and do some outdoor events as well ( we played at the Ft. Lauderdale New Year's Eve "Downtown Countdown" for three years running ). I sing lead vocals on about 20% of our song list. Since we're only doing about one gig a week right now, I'm looking for fill-in work to expand this to 2 or 3 times a week. No drugs or booze. I'm dependable and steady--no ego, no temper tantrums, no prima donna stuff. I just want to play the tunes right and get the best sound I can.
