SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Drums.
For years, I was out playing every Friday & Saturday night but my work got in the way and between trying to change careers mid-stream and other issues, I got out of playing with REAL people. Now I finally have the time and energy.
I'm getting back in the mood to want to play with some real people again. I would love to talk with you if you have ideas about playing.
I'm easy to find on the internet. Google searches for my first name and last (Johnson) should put me number one. And email contact is easy. just use my first name AT seabreeze dot net . I mean, seriously, you do see the email address there don't you? If not, click the next to the last picture and look at the bottom.... It's the one that says "You guys rock...."
I'm very versed in many genres of music. My personal preferences are danceable rock (bookable band music), classic rock, basically high-energy rock, not stoner music. What *I* like and what club owners like aren't all the same, but I also enjoy playing what gets the band bookings.
II learn my songs BEFORE band practice; I'm not into wasting the band's time not being prepared. If you like to rock, get in touch. The next to the last photo posted has my contact info. Open it, and look to the bottom right.
