ABOUT

Intermediate bass player who fools around with other instruments.

I'd like to form an alternative country band (outlaw, hellbilly, psychobilly, cowpunk, etc.). Hank III is a great example of the sound that I would like to create.

Obviously I'm looking for the basics such as vocals, drums and guitar, but I would also like to incorporate banjo, dobro/slide, and fiddle/mandolin and even some horns and piano/organ on some tracks. Even a screamer would come in handy for the harder hellbilly tracks.

I am also open to joining a group that performs original music, particularly ones with an alternative or garage rock sound.

I have a spot that can accommodate practice but it is not ideal. I am willing to travel. Also, I am currently working in Marshfield, MA so I am in the south shore area anyway Mon-Fri.

I'm serious about making this happen, so if this sounds of interest to you, please contact me at
207-538-8182 or
