ABOUT

Guitarist located in Florence, KY looking for band to join. I can do lead or rhythm and sing some backups, whatever the song needs.

Set-wise, I’m looking for 70's-80's-90's rock, pop, power pop, new wave, coffeehouse, whatever gets us gigs. No modern country, and my metal days are behind me, but anything else that gets us booked I’m willing to give a try, anything we can put our own spin on. I want to play the stuff that strikes a chord with people, but also not the tired stuff that's been beaten to death for decades.

I'm in a vocal trio currently, and doing solo acoustic gigs, but I'd still like to be a part of a full band.

For gear, I’m set. I can go amps or direct to PA, whatever works best. For my style, I've got a YT channel (search for Reid Kerr) and you can see some of my songs and mashups there, and hear my voice. Feel free to like and subscribe and all that, especially if you’re playing in the area so I’ll know who to come see.

I play most things for laughs, but I take music seriously. I want to prepare and practice and be confident when we play, so we can relax on stage and have fun, because that’s the point. If you’re not having fun, chances are no one who’s watching you is, either.

If you’re interested, drop me a line. If not, no hard feelings, hopefully I'll see you around anyway.

EQUIPMENT

Yes, I have equipment. No, I'm not going to give the specifics on a social media website, nor will I list my birth date, social security number, or where I leave the spare key when I'm on vacation. Whatever I have will be sufficient, or I'll get the right gear once I get the gig.
