Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Keyboard.


Experienced Drummer
Very serious musician seeking other serious musicians to form a band. Looking for an experienced lead guitar player, keyboard, and bass for starters. I am very much into instrumental rock/jazz/fusion as well as blues, rock, funk. Dont be shy, drop me a line. I am at mikes222 at the net. I am a drummer with 40 years experience playing writing and teaching percussion. I have chops, very technical, and prefer to play music that allows me to be improvisational and creative. I am VERY serious about playing/rehearsing and am looking to meet other musicians. I have no ego and would prefer and welcome serious players that are also looking to write and play original music as well as covers. I also play guitar and would love to do some of that as well. In short I am a very experienced musician that is looking for other experienced musicians that are serious about making music. I am a drummer first, very flexible regarding schedule. I will go as far as Chicago East and Madison North. Don't be shy,
