ABOUT

Hey, all! I'm currently forming a band with a bassist, a keyboard player/singer, and a guitarist. We're looking for another guitarist and a singer or two. We've got an interesting, eclectic list of covers that are a blast to play: some soul, some R&B, some older pop (and newer), some surf music - and some instrumentals, too! The vibe of the band is "to make a joyful noise." For real! We're not afraid of R-Rated lyrics, however - CeeLo's "F@#k You" is on the list, for instance - so we're not a 100% wholesome band designed to play for middle-school audiences - if that's what you're thinking 'joyful noise' might mean. :) We're just playing lots of happy, toe-tapping tunes, and we're aiming to play out fairly soon, albeit with a fair amount of rehearsal. Drop me a message through Bandmix or try themikemagnuson at the email that begins with a g. Oh, and if you're looking a drummer for your project, I'd love to hear from you, too!
