SEEKINGBand to Join, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
What is happening people. Been thinking real long and hard about getting back into the blues scene... venues are looking for good Blues bands. And it so happens I am very interested in finding a Blues based band around the Lake County area.
Please contact me for a tryout with your band or let me know if you are willing to start a new project.
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 and all. Was able to create the words for a couple of the songs and they turned out pretty good. However, they would be better with a different 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.

Been on band tryouts and they wanted me to sound exactly like the cover tune... I am not an impressionist, but can do my version of the songs.
