ABOUT

Anybody out there want to play some classic/southern/country rock for fun with the potential of maybe gigging out infrequently? Said another way, wanna have some fun jamming and maybe get a gig or two every now and then? This has to be about enjoying the music and not about making money. The songs I'd like to do are those from some of my "influences" listed below. I'm a guitarist who plays strong rhythm and limited lead guitar...been playing since high school in various bands and as a solo act...enjoy playing 60's and 70's music the most with some cross over to oldies from the 50's and some of the rock tunes from the early 80's...looking to join an existing band or put a band together if everyone could agree that it's for "fun" and not something to be taken too serious...said another way, this has to be a passion that's about the music and leads to some paying gigs...but it's not "the job"...very comfortable as a background singer but can sing lead on many of the southern rock tunes as well as other R&R and R&B favorites. If this sounds like something you'd like to do, send me an e-mail at "rockbud at com cast dot net". (No drugs, heavy drinking or egos please...went thru too much drama with my last band...and the drama was primarily the delusional egos of two individuals...so please leave your ego at the door.) I currently play solo 3-4 times a month but would really like to get back into a band with the right mix of people.
