ABOUT

Very experienced here (gigged out for over 10 yrs), but have been out of it for a while... wouldn't mind getting back in – with the RIGHT bunch of musicians (and play list)... Don't need the money, just miss jammin' with a bunch of cool bandmates (and sharing it with an audience!)...

I 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 (more recently), and wouldn't mind finding a band that has a mix of both acoustic and electrics songs...

I'm laid back (except on stage!), always sober and totally dependable...

Influences

I SINCERELY LOVE ALL MUSIC, but if I had to choose just ONE band, it would be Zeppelin. That doesn't mean I'm looking to cover Zep – I've just always been inspired by music that is dynamic, dramatic and with a level of intensity that makes it moving and/or memorable...

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!!!
