ABOUT

Once played local venues in Chicago area and recorded back in the day. Life happened and looking to now return to playing out again. Don't mistake this with taking on a 2nd job. I practice during my free time daily and looking for players that are like minded and produce a quality sound. I'm looking to get that "crowd going" feeling once again. If you're looking to practice as group once a week and gig occasionally then we should talk.

Influences

Dio, Ozzy, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Skid Row, Eagles, Pink Floyd, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rush, and more from 80's, 90's, 2000 rock and metal.


In general, people return to see cover or tribute bands because they know and like the songs the band plays as long as they cover it well. So the list following is recognizable, popular but covers a wide range of rock and metal. Not opposed to exploring some popular country to sprinkle into the mix but should have the same energy. Players have their favorites but an audience returns because they have a good time with what they know and like. I'm willing to learn new songs as a part of a project. Most players have these types of songs in their library. Here's a taste of what I'm looking for in a project or band:

Sweet Emotion - Aerosmith
Living On A Prayer - Bon Jovi
Everlong - Foo Fighters
Monkey Wrench - Foo Fighters
Master of Puppets - Metallica
Monkey Business - Skid Row
Been Caught Stealing - Jane's Addiction
SATO - Ozzy
Tom Sawyer - Rush
Rock Candy - Montrose
Hey Baby - Ted Nugent
The Pretender - Foo Fighters
Money - Pink Floyd
