Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Keyboard.


Health issues have kept me out of the loop for a while, but I'm ready to start performing again. I'm currently rehearsing with a drummer and bassist who are both A-List players, and we sound quite good for a trio, but I would like to bring in a keyboard player - or a strong rhythm guitarist who can also play some lead - to have a fuller sound. Old or young, male or female, doesn't matter if you've got the goods.

Vocals are a must, and while technically this is a start-up, nobody wants to spend months upon end rehearsing so you should be a quick study who pays attention to detail. In other words, we're approaching this much more like a business than a hobby, so you should learn and practice your parts at home and come to rehearsal prepared.

The fine print...
We have a small, but fully equipped rehearsal room in Margate and our material is an eclectic mix of Blues, R&B, MoTown, and some not-so-run-of-the-mill Classic Rock. We are, however, choosing songs to please our audience, not ourselves, so if you're looking for a band that will play all your favorite songs, you may not be a good fit. Also, if you can't provide any audio or video of you doing whatever it is you do, please don't respond until you can.

In some of the videos I've posted I am sitting in with The Joe Friday Band, of which I was a founding member, but I am no longer affiliated with that band.
