Drums, Bass Guitar, Lead Guitar, Keyboard, Background Singer.


OK, here's the deal. I am a forty something year old singer/songwriter from just south of Blair, NE. I have recorded a 2 demo CD's in, do a few solo acoustic gigs here and there, and am currently writing songs for a third CD. I am looking to put together a band to play a couple gigs a month to play originals and a mix of select newer country and older rock covers. I am looking for musicians who believe in what I'm doing, like the music I write, and think it has potential. My songs can be listened to at richiealle8.wix/richieallenmusic. I would classify what I want to do as Heartland rock, straight ahead rock or Americana, with a little country thrown in..Also, I am VERY hesitant on playing with anyone under the age of 30. Not because I don't think they can play, in fact, most likely they would be better players than I am. I just think that in most cases, they would have different ideas and goals that would hinder their enjoyment of a project like this.
