SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Other Percussion, Background Singer.
Originally from Ireland. Living in NYC since 2002.
Would love to join a band as a piano/keyboard player.
Maybe some acoustic guitar as backup/rhythm.
Also, my vocals are pretty good - lead or harmony.
I have plenty of cover versions (and a few original songs) recorded which I can share - besides the 2 short audio clips that I already posted on my profile and the few videos that I also uploaded.
I have not played ‘gigs’ per se. But lots of ‘open mics’ all over NYC.

I have a fairly eclectic taste in music - I enjoy everything from classical to jazz, blues and ‘rock n’ roll’.
But I would also say that I’m most inclined to play what I guess could be labeled as a mix of ‘pop/rock n’roll’ - I really love anthemic pop/rock songs, with great searing guitar/piano hooks and infectious melodies.
To give a sense of my overall main ‘influences’, here’s a list of my favorite musicians/bands...
*Top 3 favorite bands:
*Other big influences:
Kings of Leon
*Influences - but just some of their stuff:

*And of course, some of the all time greats:
The Rolling Stones
The Beach Boys

Piano/Keyboard (Yamaha, 88 keys - & the keys are weighted - lovely sound and authentic feel for piano playing)

This is an acoustic piano cover of ‘Bad Romance’ by Lady Gaga. She played it live at the Rainbow Room in NYC. Beautiful rendition. I learned it from the YouTube video. (my upload had to be trimmed to fit the MB limit)
