SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Drums, Harmonica.

ABOUT

I have been playing Classic Rock, Progressive Rock and some Metal/Alternative since my teen age years. Just parted ways with a regularly gigging band (Acadia, BFE, Warehouse Live, Concert Pub, etc....) and I am getting back to my roots, Blues. I play every day. I want to get a band together and start gigging the Blues Scene. I have plenty of contacts, so getting on stage and gigging (once we are up to snuff) will not be a problem.

Influences

Wow, loaded question time? OK, here we go (and I am not bullsh*tting) anything but Hip-Hop and Rap. Not super big on Jazz, but there is some I like (Miles Davis comes to mind). So, Rock, Country, Blues Bluegrass, Funk, Classical, Metal, Progressive and pretty much every combination of those that you can come up with.......I have a massive CD collection.

EQUIPMENT

My most valuable guitar is a 1978 MIJ Ibanez Artist. Other than that, I love cheap guitars. I have over a dozen total. Mostly Squiers and Epiphones (diamonds in the rough), I love to find guitars that have Mojo and put quality pickups and electronics in them. To me, the name on the headstock means nothing. I own an original MIJ Squier Tele (refert to my second profile picture) that toured with an Elvis impersonator for most of it's life. That guitar has more Mojo than you can shake a stick at! Dropped a couple of Classic Fender Tele pickups and a pot or two.......there is not a Fender Tele on the planet that I would trade for that guitar. I own a Martin, Takamine and Yamaha acoustics. A !950's Pre CBS Princeton, Vox, Line 6 HD75 (which I don't like much) and a Line 6 practice amp (that sounds kinda cool at times).
