ABOUT

I just moved here from Chicago, looking for a great band, or musicians, and disappointed doesn't even cover it! But before I move to LA I will try SD one more time!!!

So long story short, I was gigging in 3 bands around the midwest, playing guitar, and it got old, SOOO I moved here! I have professional equipt, and professional attitude, but of course, I do it because I love it, and it's a blast!

I am completely open to new things, or trying to work with the few musicians I have lined up. Either way, feel free to hit me up. I am LOOKING FOR BASS GTR, KEYBOARD, SINGER, AND POSSIBLY DRUMS AND SAX.

I am very hard working, and very determined. I have been talking with a drummer from DC who moved out here, and we pretty much hit it off. He is into marketing and design, so that's a huge plus! He moved out here in December and, same story as mine, was blown away by the crappy quality of music here. He lives down the street from me, which is a huge plus as well.

I also have a singer lined up to audition. He is originally from Detroit. We are all very talented and very hardworking. I can send any, or all of our links. None of us are committed at this point. But we are all very like minded and intelligent, So we are getting along well.

So, all we really need is a bass player, and keyboard player. And in time a saxophone player would be my next pick. I also play trombone, btw. (and keys, drums, and bass) BUT guitar is my "thing".

Eigt 1 five 7six one, eight, 1 one too


We are thinking, as far as styles, it'd be a funky, r&b type bluesy rock music. Anything to keep people having fun and dancing, and making us money, and fans, lol.

AGAIN, none of us are committed at the moment, I am able and willing to start something else.



AND, I am also very open to any kind of country rock band(Jason Aldean, etc). So if the right project came along I would definitely be interested. I have played many styles, in many kinds of bands, and I love them all. Except Polka, and screamo, lol.
