Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar.

ABOUT

Looking for a lead singer/rhythm guitarist with some lead capability to complete the lineup. Have a team of musicians who are over 35 to play harder-edge rock with strong hooks and attitude! Our band played over 45 gigs last year and we have momentum! THIS IS A WALK-IN SITUATION. Will post updates as they unfold but they are a mix of rock, progressive, fusion and harder edge along the lines of Creed (especially their newer stuff), Breaking Benjamin, STP, Five Finger Death Punch, AIC, solid Pink Floyd (not your half-baked fake it stuff), Chickenfoot... Theory Of A Deadman...etc. Chunky guitars, alternate tunings...strong riffs...great dynamics... solid vocals... but with hooks that the mixed crowds can get into. You know the drill!

We are definitely into originals and covers as long as it follows this line of thought and musical style. The responses that I'm getting are for the same old lame stuff... classic rock and blues...not interested! No offense meant... but I want to be different and I don't believe I need to be in a band with "kids" to get this done. There have to be solid musicians in THIS area that are older... but not over the hill! Get in touch if you're serious and you're looking for a team of guys that takes it as seriously as you do! I'm a dedicated musician looking for like-minded pros but this is a P/T gig for me ... just for the fun of it. But, if you're interested in forming a top-notch well-rehearsed band for gigs up to 2-3x p/month contact me. I have a F/T job but I take this very seriously and expect others to do the same. I only want to play with musicians who are relentless when it comes to sounding great! Very into dynamics and tasty parts. Garage bands or jammers need not apply. Looking for musicians who want to "get it right". Please be at least 40 with a sense of responsibility. You're either into it or not and you should be able to look and act the part... this is about knocking them dead during a live performance!!

Influences

Rock, Metal, Fusion, some Jazz... anything but Southern Rock... big fan of alternate tunings, progressive and melodic rock. Extreme, Vai, Rush, Whitesnake, Satriani, Creed, STP, Breaking Benjamin, Five Finger Death Punch, AIC, Soundgarden, Dream Theatre, U2, Pink Floyd, etc. Not into anything from the 50's and 60's and definitely not into wedding band standards. In short....great creative, musicians who know how to get it done.

Very into current rock from artists that deliver powerful crunch combined with great hooks! Chickenfoot, Theory of a Deadman, Kings of Leon, Bon Jovi, Creed, Collective Soul, Matchbox 20, 3 Doors Down, Bruce, Seether, Lifehouse, Daughtry, Foo Fighters, O.A.R., Nickelback, Hinder, Tom Petty, Black Crows, The Fray, etc. If you're looking for a "root note" player please look elsewhere. I'm in the pocket when necessary but I'm definitely into melodic lines that are tastefully done. Above all I want to deliver music that ignites a crowd and moves them!
