Band to Join.


I learned very early on the Bass was my calling. Guitars are fine, but it's really the Bass that carries the groove and feel of a song. I enjoy performing and always come prepared to practice/gigs. My ultimate gig would be based in the San Gabriel / Pasadena (California) area and I enjoy playing anything that is catchy or has a dance-able vibe. I'm simply looking for commitment and fun (no egos, no drugs, no prima donnas or musicians who think their time is more important than a room full of people waiting for them). Full electric and/or acoustic settings are ideal. I've learned more that 400+ cover songs "just like the record" from all genres and eras (50's through 10's). I can e-mail a list of "cover" songs upon request. Contact me back at loveland (at) pobox (dot) com if you're interested in a collaboration or need a sub.
