ABOUT

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS!
Silver hair pictures are of me now, within the last two years.

I'm looking for musicians or a backing band initially to help me record my numerous original songs. There are a few genres. Hoping to get rock n roll, rockabilly musicians interested. When the time is right and after enough practise to get 'tight,' local gigs and the better quality gigs will be preferable.

I love boogie piano, double bass and saxophone on all my songs!

If you have earned a living from performing music or you have played music with others, and especially, if you have the same taste in music as I have, I would LOVE to hear from YOU!

I particularly seek a Jerry Lee type boogie pianist.

I have another 12 songs you can hear, if you contact me to ask. When I'm not musiking, I write. I am a published novelist.

If you love rock'n'roll, Country/Blues and are of the older school era, between 56 - 70, give or take a few years each side... Write me; mama_deville@use.startmail.com Give as much info as you can if you have not said much in your profile in this site. I will get back to you.

Check out my 2012 video; http://youtu.be/hyQI0Mpu2jk Song: White Rabbit
I also have two other songs here in Bandmix. I might upload some originals later....

Influences

One of the pictures is of me with top UK band, Matchbox, who made a hit of 'Rockabilly Rebel' for many weeks in the charts. The pic was taken as their hit took off. https://youtu.be/hO3sHO8ZuIc to listen to their song.

My manager back then, was also the same one as the famous UK band, XTC, as we started off in the same club which our manager owned. "The Affair' club. I was the resident 'go-go' dancer there, for 4 years.

I like real rocking music:
Mitch Ryder. Bob Seger, George Thorogood. Bonny Raitt. Dana Gillespie. Elmore James. Rockin' Sidney. Buddy Holly. Chris Isaak. Lazy Lester. Stones. Fabulous Thunderbirds. Jerry Lee Lewis. Fats Domino. Jerry Lee. Little Richard. Mighty Joe Young. KoKo Taylor. Creedence Clearwater. Muddy Waters. Contemporary country with some modern. OTIS REDDING and the Commitments blues. The Refreshments, a Swedish rock'n'roll band are my absolute favourites.

I'm very confident and my love of performing is obvious to all. Earned a good living constantly for 20+ years plus in the business.
