ABOUT

Initially, looking for practice partner/s.

Must be able to sing and play their instrument. Completely boring if I sing them all.

If it works, playing out next option, but low pressure.

Please, no drugs / drama. Some beer.

Have three sets of 60's through 80's cover tunes. Just added a starter western swing set.

Can practice weeknights, and some weekend times.

My practice room is walk-in ready.

I have a day job.

Influences

Early: Steely Dan, Chicago (1st two, not commercial), Little Feat, Spyro Gyra, Larry Carlton, Allman Bros., Bosstones, Marshall Tucker. Complicated material requiring many competent musicians.

Now: cover tunes that one to three people can pull-off, easier all around, more music, less gear and logistics.

Currently singing and playing songs by Petty; Zevon; SRV; CCR; Costello; Beatles; Dire Straits; Johnny Rivers; Horton; Cody; Cake; Wilbury's, as examples.

Have starter country/western swing set: Yokum; Gill; Mavericks; Asleep at the Wheel; Texas Tornadoes.

I like pro covers of 50's thru 70's songs. Ex. Feel a Whole Lot Better, RocknRoll Star..Petty; Hey Good Lookin'.. Mavericks; Route 66.. Asleep at the Wheel.

In my early bands, we used surf tunes to break things up and give VOX a break. Some of its weird, some of its good. Wouldn't mind adding surf tunes, not a requirement.
