THE PROJECT: Original Alt-Rock band to play the best Mpls/St. Paul venues, frequency 2 - 4 times per month. Show time about 60-90 minutes.
THE GENRE: Garage Rock with modern sounds influenced by retro garage bands with original sounds. Usually fast tempos and edgier music. Mainly original material. Some covers will be suggested, but will be interpretations rather than copies.
PERSONNEL NEEDED: The ideal band consists of one more guitar player; one keyboard player with virtual instrumentation and midi experience; bass, and drums.
ABOUT MYSELF: I have been writing original alt/pop music since the early 90s, and compostions were recorded with full band via midi sequencing and virtual instuments. However, this is a live project. I have much preproduction done in my DAW. I have recent stage experience with two 60s pop/cover bands. I play in a Beatles cover band that still performs regularly.
COLLABORATION IMPACT: I have begun a general feel for the music, but am especially looking for writer/players who want to perform their original material in a similar genre.
ABOUT THE POSTED MUSIC: Chemical Burn written and produced in 1991. Currently not planning to use in this project because I want more current arrangements. You Are With Me written and produced about 2005. Also not planning to use in the project. Both songs included on the profile just to give other people a sample of my skill level.
