SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Keyboard, Harmonica.
Played my way thru college and then toured with many bands doing lighting, special effects, and lasers in the 70's. Making a living got in the way for a while, but that is ancient history!
**** UPDATE!! after a 2nd surgery on right upper arm and shoulder, Dr. has cleared me for getting back to normal. Cant carry a lot of weight on right side yet, but then the bass hangs off the left side ;-) Guess it is time to start looking for gigging again!!
I am looking for an actively playing / gigging band, not a startup. I love playing just about anything and have interest in both typical cover groups as well as a tribute type band that is more closely focused on one groups music such as The Allman Brothers, Eagles, S Miller, SRV, Petty, Floyd and Zep, and The Who that needs a bass player. More about that experience when the time is right.
Being retired now, time of day is not a concern!

Gibson, Fender, and Ibanez Basses, classic tube and modern hybrid Ampeg equipment, classic tube Sunn equipment. Fully wireless for guitars, mic, and IEM... in other words, everything I need but a band.
I also have an X32 digital board with 16 ch remote digital stage box, split snake, and ~ 400ft of shielded cat 5 & 6 Ethernet cable. I don't like to do sound when playing, but it is nice to be able to set it and forget it while recording multi-track for later use. FOH level tweaking can be done via wireless tablet if absolutely necessary. <I'm flexible>
