ABOUT

Friends, Coloradans, Musicians, lend me your ears. My name is Joshua David Simpson, I am a rock guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, and tenor singer from South Dakota. I am a freshmen at CSU. Don't let that deter you my friend. I own a professional rig, can transport it myself, and am available to meet/practice/gig 3-5 times a week. I am a connoisseur of 1965-85 rock and roll and early heavy metal. I look the part of a 70s rock musician, and have developed an impressive stage presence/rapport through the many bands I have performed with at home. I'm looking for 3-4 other musicians to fill out a band with. Most immediately I'm looking for a drummer influence by 70s drummers who can hold it down, bring it when necessary, has a rehearsal space, can transport their own rig, looks the part, and can sing backing/lead vocals similar to Roger Taylor or Ringo Starr.I'm looking for a co-lead guitarist, and bass player with similarly impressive attributes. I'm looking to start a 70s rock and roll cover band Ala Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Judas priest. in addition to the cover band aspect, we would also concurrently write original music, with song writing, and lead vocalist duties being open to everyone in the band.

~~~~~fellow musicians, if this interests you, drop me a line and we can jam to test our personal rapport and musical compatibility! CHEERS!
