ABOUT

Laid back, easy to work with Drummer. Lots of styles, but I definitely like a song with a hook. Like to play shows and record (my recording experience is less than my live exp.) I have a day job, long tours are out of the question. Short tours, ok.

Open to all sorts of genres, I would like to keep it original if possible. I like to being involved in the writing process if possible, If not, no matter. I also take direction very well.

COVER BANDS: It would have to be a pretty unique ensemble for me to join a cover/tribute band. It would have to be full blown entertaining with a unique twist of sorts. I will kill myself if I have to play a song by "Boston". I would like to do original music if I had the choice.

I will try mostly anything, including bad outfits and purposely bad music. Even though, I am serious about my playing, I don't take things too serious. I like to laugh at raunchy things. If you want to sing about "The World's Largest Vagina", i'd get behind that.
