ABOUT

Keyboard/Sax Player/singer and two other musicians (bassist and drummer) are seeking a guitarist 4th member. He or she should be able to read chord charts, as much of what we play is charted. We play a variety of genres, including R&B, Jazz, Soul, Latin, Classic Rock, and more. We enjoy featuring the guitarist on jazz and standards from Real Book editions and reading and knowing ALL chordal structures helps us learn material quickly and allows us to immediately play requests that we have in Real Books or in sheet music form.

We are all retired and we usually practice on Friday afternoons from around 11 a.m. until 2 or 3 p.m. Our vision is to appeal to a diverse musical audience and to be able to accommodate a wide range of venues and musical occasions..
.
Please contact Mike via Bandmix message if you feel you can help us with our project. Also, take a listen to the audio on this Bandmix profile to get an idea of the kinds of material we play.

We look forward to working with a guitarist who is honest about his/her skill set and who shares a similar musical vision and similar musical prefernces.

Thanks,
Mike
