Band to Join, Bass Guitar, Vocalist, Drums.

ABOUT

I'VE BEEN LOOKING, AND I'M STILL LOOKING FOR A SINGING DRUMMER (backups) AND SINGING BASS PLAYER (backups at least, but lead vocal ability is cool!!) As of 12/5/2018 !!!
Seriously, can we do this?

First off, yep, that profile pic is me, just with short blond hair, instead of the old school long dark.


Lead Guitar Player/Singer, have played with DangerBoy,Inside Straight, Rhaven,etc...Looking for a few good musicians who can sing backup at least, and actually play their instruments at the same time.
I am putting together a cover band with strong harmonies and killer (okay, at least decent) musicianship. That's right I said it COVER BAND!!!! Don't mind doing originals, but let's get something up and running first.
I have a list of about 50 or 60 songs I like playing, and am willing to play just about anything you like, within my abilities. For instance, don't ask me to play say, some Yngwie Malmsteen, I'm just not that kind of player...
I am also NOT into spending months and months in the basement rehearsing. I am about getting it together, and getting out there and playing. I am connected, and know how to get work. Besides, you just don't really get tight as a band until you've been playing out for awhile, anyway.
So let's play my material, and we'll play yours too. PLEASE don't waste my time. I play this stuff right, and expect the same from my musicians.
If you are looking to work, and actually MAKE MONEY, contact me.
And don't let the tone of this ad scare you. I'm totally focused, but still pretty mellow. I just want my feelings and expectations to be known up front, so there are no questions later. I'm looking for some good, like minded musicians to work with.
