Bass Guitar, Drums.


Relocated to TX. Singerguitarist looking for bass/drums,(preferably with vocal ability) to form an old school punk/power pop trio. Think Ramones, Clash, Social D, Rancid type music. Played in a Ramones tribute back in NO several yrs ago. Not looking to be a rock star(lived that life once(lol), have a day job, and another band also which I really enjoy. No drugs, no attitude. If you want to discuss, pm me. I also do originals in the same vein. Top priority: fun. Been playing this stuff for 30 yrs., love it. There's no one else out there doing what we do, so demand is there. Practice at least once a week until show is down, then as needed. Previous bands were The Take(80's) and The Jetsuns. Also do acoustic solo, duo. . Check it out on /HessLA, or on . Contact via HessLA or Mark Hessler
