ABOUT

I'm looking for a band/group of players to form a band that is interested in gigging out at clubs/venues the most diverse, obscure mix of cover tunes and originals that the crowd may or may not realize are cover tunes or originals; because we as a band should select the most quality songs and have the talent to back them up, pull them off, whatever you want to call it, and impress the crowd as a technically advanced outfit of musicians. I am definitely not looking to be in an average run-of -the-mill brew-slinging dive bar band.

EQUIPMENT

----- Currently building a new PDP (by DW) Concept Maple 8-pc. (single bass drum) silver sparkle to black fade kit. Have all the drums, need additional funds to complete the kit with hardware (stands), travel bags, and a few cymbals to make the kit ready to go and roadworthy.
----- Current working kit --- old, rusty, moldy, filthy, '91 Ludwig Rockers in red casings. The setup is a double bass 9-pc., bit I would probably opt for a single bass 5-pc. with double pedal for any upcoming near future gigs/rehearsals until I get the PDP kit up and running as roadworthy.
----- misc. Rhodes keyboard in the basement, Roland Blues Cube guitar amp, Acoustic brand stand-up bass amp (4-15s), left handed Epiphone Les Paul (black) and Ibenez P/J bass (black), assorted (mostly Shure) microphones, Mackie 16 channel mixing board, etc., etc.
