Philly Guitar


Band to Join, Bass Guitar, Drums, Saxophone, Keyboard.


I just moved to Smithfield. I have been a guitarist 54 of my 59 years. My last band parted ways due to my move. We were a six-piece dance band, playing the hits from the '60s to the present. I played both rhythm and lead guitar in the band and provided backing vocals. I am a classic rock player at heart and am a Beatles freak, however, I know that when people go out at night, they want to dance. It is so important to play what the crowd wants. Self-indulgence is not my thing.

I have all state of the art gear and have always been deeply committed to my band. I hope to find the same situation in Raleigh.
