Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums.


I am looking to start or join a band.
I'm into Hard rock, classic rock, alternative, progressive, grunge, metal, doom, stoner rock, blues.....
You get the idea.
I have plenty of experience playing on a stage. I have played around the area with a handful of local bands (both original and cover) the longest running and most notable being a band called Gravity where I shared both guitar and vocal duties. Feel free to contact me at....johnsmontess at v.e.r.i.z.o.n. dot net.
