Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar.

ABOUT

I am looking for a bass player and possibly a second guitarist (lead or rhythm either/or) to play in an original band. Our style is a basic heavy rock sound derived from bands like Black Sabbath and AC/DC. Straight and to the point. We have practice space, pro gear, recording equipment , transportation, and are easy going. We aren't looking to kill anyone with relentless practice sessions and non stop shows. We practice once a week and are looking to gig maybe a couple times a month. If this sounds like something that you would be interested in, send me a message and we'll set something up.
