ABOUT

Male, 52 looking to join/form a band. 25+yrs playing. Have pro equipment and trans. and YES...a REAL job. I'm NOT looking to make it BIG...I just want to gig out,possibly make some coin, and have fun with a good group of people. I'm searching for non flaky,f%^&$# up, drama free people who can actually PLAY...
My influences are as follows: Jimi(of course), Stevie, Clapton, Robin Trower, Rory Gallagher, Joe Bonamassa,Gary Moore, Phillip Sayce,Leslie West.....you know......Old Skool Blues Rock!!

This IS the type of music I want to play!


Believe me….there IS a market out there for this music!!


I’m NOT looking to play the same old bar band songs.( Brown Eyed Girl, Tush, Rock and Roll (Zep) and the like) I’d sooner quit playing!

Here is some of what I would like to play:

Mountain's Silver Paper,Nantucket Sleighride;Theme From An Imaginary Western

Trower's Day Of The Eagle, Too Rolling Stoned and Bridge Of Sighs,

Humble Pie's Four Day Creep, I Don't Need No Doctor,

Cream's Outside Woman Blues, Crossroads, Politician:

Zeppelin, Custard Pie, Nobody's Fault but Mine, Ten Years Gone, The Lemon Song...........you get the idea!!!

If you want to get an idea of my skill level and playing style; here's my You-Tube page address; ://./profile?user=rich655

Hoping to have the convenience of having people in my area!!! (I’m not looking to be an ass but.....I don't want to drive across the state to practice!!) PLEASE BE reasonably CLOSE by!!
Are you out there?
