Band to Join, Vocalist - Tenor, Rhythm Guitar, Other Percussion, Trumpet, Saxophone, Keyboard, Piano, Harmonica, Flute, Vocalist - Alto, Trombone, Clarinet.


At the moment I have been playing a bass guitar for a few years. Before that I've played drums, clarinet, tenor saxophone and a wind synthesizer. Though I've had some formal training - classical, jazz, composition, arranging, theory - I consider myself an armature and very much a music student. Currently I am in two bands: '50s - '60s Rock and a jazz trio.

I'd like to form or join a small group of local, likeminded adult musicians interested in jazz and the Great American Songbook. The main objective is to learn, improve, make some good music and have a little fun.

I can be reached via email vruoc at y_____o dot com.
