Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Background Singer.


What's up? I'm Jon...

Looking for a guitarist(s) and bassist for an original band to join myself and a drummer. I've been playing guitar for about 7-8 years, but would like my primary focus to be on vocals these days.

We're both dedicated and have bigger goals than occasionally playing local bars on the weekends. So, we're looking for people who have that same level of dedication, who can make this a priority in their lives. People who want to work their asses off and ultimately tour.

Musically, looking for people who can take the lead on writing guitar and bass parts and are confident in their songwriting abilities.

We're by no means veteran players, so there's obviously a learning curve for all of us. Just looking to get talented people in the same room with a common goal and we'll see what happens from there.

Some of the covers I've done, although a little old:
