ABOUT

Lead guitarist looking to play anything with groove - funk, soul, disco, jazz... covers or original music, open to new ideas. Played and gigged with bands in Israel, UK & Spain, now based in Brooklyn, NY and looking for a band to jam/gig with.

Interested in joining an existing band or starting something new - I was the lead guitarist of my previous band, a 9-piece funk cover band for which I also wrote the horn arrangements and some original tunes. Happy to follow someone else's lead too!

I've been playing music for a long time, take rehearsals seriously and always come prepared. At the same time, music is not the only thing I do in life, and so I have some time constraints. Looking to rehears 1-2 times a week and happy to gig in the NY area, but probably can't do tours.

Looking for like-minded people who love playing groovy music and having a good time, take their music seriously but aren't looking to tour on a regular basis.
