ABOUT

INTERESTED IN STARTING OR JOINING A BLUES/CLASSIC ROCK BAND.
SEE INFLUENCES FOR PLAYLIST. I would like to find a bass player, guitarist, drummer, keyboardist, & singer. I sing a bit but not much or very well. My motto for a band is keep it small and it works better. My goal is 2 gigs per month. I like to have regularly scheduled practices (once a week is good). I am a married, dependable, regular guy working in construction. I expect bandmates to be dependable and have good equipment and a vehicle. Mostly I want to have fun. If it's not fun it's work and I have a job already. Don't need drama or drug/alcohol problems.
65 Years of age. BTW I do not smoke anything. Rarely do I drink.
