Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Other Percussion.


Would like to put together a casual 2 or 3 piece semi-acoustic/acoustic duo or trio in Germantown area. One or two guitars or bass plus percussion. You would be the primary singer...I am not (see video and you will understand). Just for fun...play some open mics and maybe parties for friends...maybe more. Low volume...high energy.

Some other stuff about me: played bass guitar in two previous bands (ages ago)--Greedy Joe and Satellite Red. Mix of originals and covers by U2, Green Day, Bush, Sheryl Crowe, STP, Live, Blondie, Gin Blossoms, etc. Played small bars around town including Grog and Tankard (who didn't play there??). Biggest gig was opening for Stroke9 (remember Little Black Backpack) on the west Capital steps.

The caveats: I'm a soccer dad too, so scheduling practice time is difficult. If you are nearby Germantown and have practice space, I am generally available after 9pm. Oh, I have a good sense of humor despite my presentation in the BandMix profile pic.
