Pedal Steel Guitarist
I am located in the Phoenix/Mesa, Arizona area.
I am seeking a Professional Band, Duo situation, Recording Studio work, etc. I am willing to Tour...as well as Relocate.
*** Also, I am Currently looking for a Lead Vocalist who plays Guitar *** This is for a Special DUO situation, playing at Assisted Living Facilities/Senior Citizens Facilities, Memory Care, Music Therapy, etc. It Pays VERY WELL, & the set is only 45-60 minutes long. Gigs/Shows...can start almost immediately!
I plan to do 1-2 shows a day, 2-4 days a week. It is easy work...& is all LOCAL, in the Phoenix/Mesa, Arizona area. I can do this SOLO, with a portable audio system, backing me up....BUT, I would prefer having someone to perform with. I am not a front man at all...& having someone with some Front Man/Microphone experience, would be Ideal.. These will be CONSISTENT gigs...on a REGULAR BASIS, during the day. Leaving your nights free.
Note: My Number has changed, since the one listed on "Carmelita," It is now: 480-694-7961

Just Noodling Around (2015) Track number: 1 Year: 2015 Album: Home Recording Genre: Country
Date of Recording: May 10, 2015. I am playing my NEW, 2015 S-10/SD-10 ZumSteel Encore, Pedal Steel Guitar. with Bill Lawrence XR-16 Pickup, Hilton Volume Pedal, Roland Cube 80 X Amp, etc. No effects were used (dry). Recorded using my iPhone 5s. My Canon PS-1000 needed batteries. That is what I usually use when recording. This is just me, recording into my Amp's "Looper." It has a 40 second max. capacity memory. I didn't practice this, or anything. I was just checking out the looper feature...& came up with this. Their are a couple "clams" in this...but I kinda like what I was playing...so I decided to post it here, as it is VERY CURRENT. Their is a lot more coming from me...so, keep checking back, ok?
