ABOUT

Currently looking to start or join Chicago based band. 40 years plus playing experience; I have been in bands ranging from Allman Brothers tribute bands to R&B Road shows and plenty in-between. Open to many styles, but metal is not one of them. I would be open to the 70s/80s/90s cover situation, but I am looking to do covers that others won’t or don’t think of. Pro equipment for both large and small venues. Open to rehearsing once a week. I’m looking to gig at least once a month if not more. I like to have fun while rehearsing, but also believe in getting sh*t done. I also like to have fun on stage, but professionalism is important to me. I’ve been in bands with people who make horse’s asses of themselves on stage and I am not going there anymore.
