ABOUT

I want to start a gigging band. Let's have a great time and make meaningful, relevant, intelligent music. I can write, add your style, I have a great sound on my guitar, and I want to put killer backing tracks on the PA while we play. Would love a drummer who is open to try new things, non-traditional parts (but steady of course), and with backing tracks (pre-recorded parts that he/she will create and play to...no click tracks!) I can sing, have a ton of energy and passion for the music, but I know there's better than me out there on the mic and we'd have to click ideologically (but will hold down the stage until we find that person). I can bring energy and ideas. Just needs drums and bass! ...and vocalist, if you get it. I have many songs, would love to contribute to yours, but they're always better when we make them together. No drugs (but if you smoke weed it doesn't bother me). So many people lack awareness, and I want to make music that wakes people up.

EQUIPMENT

I'm a pedal guy and love to create sounds that are unique and consistent. I like to play through my Ampeg Reverbrocket, it has a unique tone, but will also play through a B-52 AT-100 1/2 stack. I can also combine them for a unique sound. I generally play an American-made Fender Strat and have some older Fenders that sound unique. I have a bunch of guitars that can create the ambience needed to support the song being played. I love to put backing tracks over the PA. I've dialed it in so that the drummer can play to whatever they want to with headphones (no click tracks but their own pre-recorded parts) which keeps everything in perfect time. It's an easy system, and the drummers I've done it with all were hesitant at first but ended up loving it.
