Experienced vocalist/frontman here (well over 100 gigs under my belt), former singer for '90s Alt/Pop Rock cover band The Bentley's, looking to join the RIGHT bunch of musicians (and play list) – prefer an ESTABLISHED COVER band but will consider a start up/reboot project (see below for more details on that)...
Don't need the money, just want to jam with a bunch of cool bandmates and SHARE IT WITH AN ENERGIZED AUDIENCE!!!
I've always fronted 4 or 5-piece electric rock cover bands doing everything from Classic Rock (SRV/Clapton/Allman Bros/Black Crowes/etc) to Alternative (RHCP/Third Eye Blind/etc) to edgier 90's/00's Rock (Candlebox/Buck Cherry/Collective Soul/etc). I have also done acoustic gigs (and wouldn't mind finding a band that has a mix of both acoustic and electrics songs...
I'm serious but laid back (except on stage!), always sober and totally dependable...

My feeling about COVER bands is that you're just hired entertainment (you're not "in concert") – so the more people that you attract and the more beer/drinks that get sold, the happier your employers are – and the more (and better) gigs you get! In my humble opinion, that means making the WOMEN happy (when the women are happy, EVERYBODY is happy – LOL)...
Rock cover bands always run the risk of rocking TOO hard and appealing to a largely male-oriented audience. My philosophy is that a ROCK cover band's playlist should be fun and DANCEABLE enough for the ladies – but still rock hard enough for the men they bring along (or are trying to hook up with them!). It's a fine line to walk, I know – but I've been lucky enough to find that balance point and experience the results. This is all just my humble opinion, of course... LOL!!!
Pro gear – everything a singer needs!
