SEEKING

Vocalist, Vocalist - Tenor, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Other.

ABOUT

Looking to form a band for ORIGINALS. Not interested in covers, except creative arrangements that add value to the song. I play bass guitar, upright bass, keyboards. I sing my own songs (unless--of course--you can do mine better!), and background vocals for yours. I have a lot of experience--Philly, San Francisco, St. Louis, London--and decent equipment (an inventory of keys, including Korg, Yamaha, Roland), Mackie PA, small-medium-large amps, etc.).

Looking for musicians with adult sensibilities, whether you're 20-something or 40-something. That means creative output, disciplined rehearsals, and a sense of cooperation. NOT looking for stars--looking for musicianship, quality, and synergy. Concert situations sought;--Money is Nice.
