SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

The drummer of The Road Dogs and The Alley Dogs (spanning over 25 years) seeks a high-energy, South Bay, rock band. I have also performed with The Pearl Alley Band, a South Bay-based, original blues-rock band; Instinct, a San Jose-based hard rock cover band; as well as The Rock-O-Matics, an East Bay-based classic rock band. Venues that I have performed at over the years include Charley's Los Gatos (formerly known as Mountain Charley's), No.1 Broadway, Willow Den, Myth Traverna, Los Gatos Brewery, Evergreen Village Square, Neto's, the Sonoma Chicken Coop, Jason-Stephens Winery, Testarossa Winery, and numerous private and corporate parties, Bay Area Festivals and street dances in Campbell, Los Altos, Morgan Hill, Mountain View, Palo Alto, San Jose and Saratoga.

I am in my mid-50s, married, have a professional career and other interests/responsibilities, but still love to rock! I would ideally like to gig locally (Bay Area) 10 to 20 times annually and can commit to weekly rehearsals.
