I'm a classic rock guy who enjoys playing to please audiences by playing the music so well they have to toe tap, hand clap, lip sync, or hip shake. I'm not in this for the money. I like to keep the music true in spirit to the original recording and give the audience something they can count on. I'm interested in an occasional gig at selective events or venues with a song list that everyone recognizes and begs for. I've a practice studio in my finished basement that is fully equipped with a sound and lighting system. I've put the core nucleus of a FANTASTIC band together that shares similar goals as me. Check out .flashdriveband if you're curious. I look for musicians who come 100% prepared to each practice, who have no egos, who are not "head cases," who are musically inclined and instrumentally proficient, who are illegal drug and alcohol averse, and who do not SMOKE. If that's you, then I'd enjoy hearing from you.
