SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Piano, Harmonica.

ABOUT

"Blues-Lovin" Bassist seeks one of 2 situations: Current band to slip into OR start putting one together in New Smyrna/ Port Orange/ Daytona area. Guitar, Harp, Keys, Drummer, Vocalist/writer. Only requirement is love of all types of blues. I'm a basic groove player that can get "whole note simple" to more complex depending on where the band's going. I believe in supporting the rest of the band, locked in with the drummer
The feel and dynamics are the heartbeat of the band and when all is kickin, that makes for a great gig as far as I'm concerned. I LOVE the process of creating a new band and I'd like to become the most talked about local band in this area and then who knows where it can go from there?
I'm not interested in POP/Top40/what's on the radio etc. Been there , done that. Blues is universal, timeless, and an equal opportunity groove for all. Doesn't matter young or old, just as long as you can play and pour your soul into it.

Anyone interested out there? (I'm excited , that's for sure!) As they say on that Home Depot commercial, "Let's Do This" Later...
