Russ Merritt


Band to Join, Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Drums.


I'm just a guy with a guitar, a decent voice, a good attitude and a bunch of music gear - looking for reliable and dependable people to jam with or to assemble a good local "power band" with. I have good vocal ability but would rather not be the lead singer - would love to be in a band where everyone shares vocals. I've always wanted to be in a local cover band which also includes a female singer / vocalist, to really open up the repertoire for the local masses.
