Hello everyone on Bandmix. My name is Omar and I am a lonely drummer, percussionist, singer, dancer, and songwriter looking for a nice group of male and female R&B musicians to start a band with. The main reason why I need to form a band is to bring back real authentic music from the 20th Century (70s, 80s, and 90s), use our music to help many people who are feeling depressed, inspire many boys and girls to play any instrument, and allow people to dance and have fun so we could put an end to all kinds of abuse. If you want to contact me, feel free to add me on Face book (h ttps://.face book/omar.s.smith1), I will be more than happy to have a friendly conversation, hopefully we will get together and jam on our instruments.
