ABOUT

I have great equipment and am looking to get out of the house to play music at least once a week. I'm an accountant, so I'm not relying on music for income. I want it to be fun, but I also want it to sound really good. I prefer a band that plays original music, with creative covers. I also like (and am fairly good at) improvisation. I'm 42, enjoy beer (but not getting trashed and screwing up), and I'm reliable. I don't read music, but after 27 years of faking it, you probably won't be able to tell a difference, unless you hand me sheet music. I can sing lead or backup, preferably both.
