SEEKINGBand to Join, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
What's happening out there in these trying times of COVID-19 people? Been keeping safe and COVID free since March 2020.
Times are changing for real. Been thinking about getting back into the Rock and or Blues scene... Working on finding a Blues based rockin' band around the area that is in need of down to earth creative type of singer.
Please contact me for a tryout with your band, a friends band or let me know if you are willing to start a new project. There has to be someone out there ready to get something started... Rock, Blues, Classic Rock, Heavy Rock... whatever!!
My vocal range, I found out recently... is not the folk, acoustic guitar type. Tried it and was not personally happy with the outcome. Just couldn't let the vocals rip...
Met a Guitar player with over 100 originals and it was cool as I was able to create the words for a couple of his original songs. They turned out pretty good. However, they would be better with a different type of singer.
Was the Lead Singer of Stage Fright out of Kenosha and played around Southeastern Wisconsin and Lake County IL for about 4 1/2 years (2010-2014). Unfortunately, our Bass player lost his battle with Cancer in early 2015.
Stage Fright rocked what we called an Acid Blues Edge to our cover tunes and originals.
Some of our cover songs: Foxey Lady, I Got a Line on You, I Drink Alone, Sweet Home Chicago, Born to be Wild, Paranoid, Mississippi Queen, I Just Wanna Make Love to You, Stepping Stone, Politician, Tush, Red House, Hoochie Coochie Man, Rock Me Baby, Honky Tonk Women, Jumpin Jack Flash and 9 Blues Rock Originals.

Alright, I have been on band tryouts (prior to Stagefright) and they expected me to sound exactly like the artist... I told them that I was not an impressionist, but what I can do for you is my version of the songs. (Stagefright wanted that and my vocals worked very well with the songs we performed).
