Band to Join.

ABOUT

I’m a very good, not professional keyboard player. My natural style is most like Billy Joel. But I can play pretty much any style. I prefer playing piano to synth or organ, but will do those too, if it’s part of the gig. Give me the chords and I can fake something that sounds decent. But I need the chords, I don’t have an ear to just play with nothing. I can read sheet music. I also play basic rhythm and acoustic guitar with tabs and some practice, but defiantly don’t shred. Can sing a bit. Not looking for a record deal, but I want to play out with people who are committed without any drama. I was once an excellent jazz trumpet player.

Influences

Billy Joel. Elton John. Journey, Bruce Hornsby and Styx types of keyboard stuff.

Enjoy Jam bands like Dave Mathews and Rusted Root. Favorite bands are Live, Queen, Zepplin, The Police, Rush…. Also like Marooon 5 and Foo Fighters for more current stuff. I enjoy playing pretty much anything. I learned classical, played jazz trumpet in high along with keyboards in rock bands. I’ll do country too, even though I don’t much listen to it.
