ABOUT

Hello and thanx for checking out my profile. Ive been playing for 20+ years now, taught for the last 6 or so years. As you can see from my pictures (videos to come), I've filled in for a few of my friends and their bands in the area. I'm really looking for a good rock/party band that plays a wide variety of songs-(keep the guys rockin', girls dancin'). After being out in the bars/clubs the past few years, Ive seen the bands that do that attract the bigger crowds.
I'm able to practice on the weekends, maybe during the week if your close to me. If this is your band or what you're looking to start up, hit me up and we'll talk. jbuffington1989, or 815-712-8373. Thanx and hope to hear from you. ( for email address)

Influences

First Influence was Elvis "jailhouse rock" at a young age, Then onto all 80's rock/metal bands--Judas Priest was first concert, had to buy guitar after that show, 90's metal, alternative, some blues, acoustic stuff, Southern rock-- lived in Jacksonville, Fl.--Skynard tune in their local bars is still like the national anthem down there. Don't want to leave out alot of 60's 70's tunes, eagles, ccr, etc, Modern stuff as well Maroon 5, Theory of a Deadman etc.
