Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Piano, Background Singer, Other.


Grew up in Houston, Tx. but have lived in Iowa for 15 years. Recently moved to Grimes. Formerly the lead guitarist for 6 years for the now defunct cover band Siktiket in Des Moines. Looking to make new musician friends/connections in the Grimes/Des Moines area. I am recently divorced with 4 children who visit on weekends. I work full time and just play music for fun. Interested in cover, tribute, original, and acoustic. I'm planning to do some type of original music, possibly even just some instrumental. When doing covers, I work my ass off to get everything to sound like the original recordings if possible. If your interested in talking about similar interests, you can reach me at RSchmitt1966 at AOL dot com.
