Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm looking for a Northern Virginia based band playing any combination of Pop, Rock, Top-40, Modern Country material. A group that is up and running.

Keyboard player with years of experience playing in weekend bands. Adept at working within the group to fill in the holes and adding sweetener to sound. I’ve been playing rock and pop hits form the 70s to current material. I’ve played in bands in Detroit and Minneapolis and over the past 10+ years, here in Northern Virginia. I do my homework. I work out the arrangements and patches.

My keyboard rig allows me to cover organ, piano, strings, horns and a variety of synth sounds. I try to minimize both my stage setup and stage volume.

I can be reached at M703612313W@hotmail.com
