ABOUT

If you want your band to do Foreplay/Longtime and Motley Crue Home Sweet Home perfectly - call me...

Very experienced keys/synth and rhythm guitar

Looking for new opportunities. Just moved here from 5 years in Seattle - had a couple bands there (rocking cover band and SRV tribute band).

Been playing out in bars since age 15. Mostly keys, vocals and guitar. Started keys as a young kid. Sometimes will sit-in on drums - but that is not my specialty. Was in two southern rock tribute bands in Richmond, VA. Before that a couple classic rock bands, a heavy metal/fusion band.

Looking for a band to contribute to in the Baltimore/Central Atlantic area. Can easily step in for most cover bands, blues bands, rock in general. Given a set list I could prep within a week or two to get yet-unlearned songs down.
