enjoy classic rock, funk & soul,progressive, jazz, roots, "world", real country
I've been playing out for 25+ years. I've played everything from progressive to jazz/big band to classic rock to country. I have good time, chops, improv, groove -in odd time if need be, and sense of song. Good reader;
I like all variations –, rockin’, heavy, mellow, funky, shuffles, ballads – whatever gets you and the audience through the night. I can get through, and enjoy, most of the top 500 rock lists.
Gigs included Sine',Capital Ale House, the Irish and Watermelon Festivals, Grandpa Eddie's, Sharky's, Poe's Pub, Blues Place, Home Team Grill, Shooter's, County Rib & Ale ,private parties, fundraisers, corporate functions etc.
, and w /Roger Daltrey at Hollywood House of Blues (long story).
Good equipment, etc.
I have job, kids, etc, but I still see my muse on the side.
looking for sub gigs, good musicians to play out, record
