Since 1981 I've been playing classic rock and blues mainly. Other stuff from recent years thrown in. Lately I've been playing the blues with three very talented guys. We're starting to push the boundaries a bit to include Americana and Roots Rock. We can also do classic rock and acoustic style gigs. Looking for a female singer that can sing the blues, Americana, and classic rock stuff we're doing. Contact me at: redzroxx52 at g mail dot com

Electric influences - Hendrix, Clapton, Trower, ZZ Top, Yardbirds, early Fleetwood Mac, Petty, Traffic, Cream, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Who, Free, Neil Young, Blues aritists, etc.
Acoustic influences - Neil Young, Nils Lofgren, Jethro Tull, John Martyn, Cat Stevens, J.J. Cale, Eagles, America, Richard Thompson, Bob Dylan. I listen to internet radio, and like a lot of newer rootsier rock like J.D. McPherson, Black Keys, Moreland and Arbuckle, Jason Isbell, etc. Also like the acoustic stuff I've heard.
