Band to Join.

ABOUT

Currently with a band playing all original music with a 70's classic rock feel. We were practicing weekly with one gig every other month. Recently, the frequency of practice and gigging has been less and I'd enjoy doing more.

A consistent weekly band practice and a monthly gig would be perfect.

I tend to pick up my guitar and play most every day.

I enjoy musicians who play as a team with minimal ego and drama always aiming to get better and tighter. To me that is what is most rewarding as well as fun.

I welcome the opportunity to create solos for original music. I guess you can say I've got a session man within me. I'm extremely coachable and want to deliver what the songwriter has in his head and just as pleased to be left to create solos and tasty stuff on my own.

I enjoy playing rock, southern rock, blues and some jazzy funky stuff. Also opened to exploring new territory.

Background...Played in several bands since the 70s - mostly classic rock, Stones, Allman Brothers, The Who, Doors, as well as original music etc.
