SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar.
I'm looking to either join or start up a band in or around Hickory. I'm primarily a drummer, but I'm learning guitar, I sing a bit, and I'm trying to write a bit too. Was in a Reggae-Rock band that dissolved, we wrote originals and played covers. Tired of seeing the same 90s & 70s cover bands around here.. Want to do: Anything Different!.. One of the below ideas, or a mix of it all.
- I REALLY WANT TO START A REGGAE-ROCK BAND THAT WRITES ORIGINALS, PLAYS HITS BY ALL THE BIG NAMES OF REGGAE, AND REGGAE VERSIONS OF NON-REGGAE SONGS.
- I LIKE THE 2 MAN BLUES-ROCK BAND THING AS WELL, LIKE WHITE STRIPES, BLACK KEYS, MC-RUT, ROYAL BLOOD. IT WOULD BE COOL TO DO, JUST BECAUSE NOBODY IS DOING IT HERE. AND FROM EXPERIENCE, ITS MUCH EASIER THAN GETTING 3 OR 4 GUYS TOGETHER.
- I WOULD EVEN BE DOWN TO START A OUTLAW COUNTRY BAND (w/ guys 21-35), AGAIN, JUST BECAUSE NOBODY IS DOING IT, AND IT WOULD GO OVER VERY WELL HERE.
- I COULD ALSO WORK WITH A RAPPER THAT LOVES REAL HIP-HOP, DOESN'T HAVE GOLD TEETH & FACE TATTOOS, RAPS ABOUT REAL LIFE, AND CAN DO IT WITH A LIVE BAND.
- I DON'T LIKE: JAM BANDS, TECHNO/DUBSTEP, POP COUNTRY, THE TYPICAL 90s & 70s RADIO HITS EVERYONE PLAYS, COOKIE MONSTER METAL, POP RAP, EMO ROCK, etc.
