Band to Join.

ABOUT

Middle aged, Male, Not a Drunk or Druggie. Play Bass guitar mostly, can also play some guitar and keys, and sing depending on the song.
I recently walked away from a Blues/Rock band that was going nowhere, and I'm presently searching for something new. I prefer blues and rock. I have a full time job and ties to the middle Tennessee area, so I'm not looking to travel or tour.
I'd prefer to link up with other local musicians who want to rehearse on a regular basis and just play around the area locally.
I have always played in bands where I felt I was an "Equal Partner" and was treated accordingly. I expect to take part in the decision making, song selections, and group duties. I'm not looking for a "Self Proclaimed Band Leader" to bark out orders and tell me how to play or what to do. The way I see it - if the band consists of 3, 4 or 5 members, then there are 3, 4 or 5 opinions and options. If that's not going to be the case, don't bother to contact me.
