Band to Join.

ABOUT

Looking for a WORKING band in need of a singing (lead, backup, harmony) bass guitar, rhythm guitar or keyboard player. Will switch between instruments as needed. Please listen to a few of the posted videos. I can do lead vocals or am just as content to do harmony/background vocal - whatever you need me to do. I'm also available to provide and run sound/lights and record live shows for just about any size show, indoors or out.

Influences

I've played in numerous country, southern rock, classic rock and recently funk bands over the years. I have my preferences, but they don't - and shouldn't - matter. What matters is playing songs that an audience wants to hear and are within the band's capability to do well. Playing covers doesn't necessarily require replicating the original artist, but (IMHO) it does mean capturing the essence of the tune, or the "signature lick" such that it is recognizable. With today's technology, it's not that difficult.

EQUIPMENT

If it's needed for live performance or studio recording, I probably have it and have the means to get the gear where it needs to go.
