ABOUT

Never too old to Rock and Roll. I've played rhythm guitar most of my life - I can play some leads but have always been in bands that had lead players that were way better than me. My claim to fame, when I lived in Florida (late 1970's), my band was the opening act for Jimmy Buffett, the Little River Band, and the Steve Miller Band - 33,000 people. Check out this site for photos and sample of the music - type in "southpaw reunion google sites" in your browser and you should be able to find it. We did all original music - to pigeonhole it, call it rock with a Southern flavor - featuring double leads, and four part vocal harmonies. Looking to join existing band or form new one. I have at least three, one hour sets of original music available to play, and would prefer to concentrate on originals. But most of all, I just want to play. I am familiar with most of the classic rock standards, and I am quick study.
