ABOUT

I am looking to get together with any musicians who want to develop some solid sets of classic rock and Americana tunes and look for places to play out. It's time to start playing again. I'm Southwest Suburban Milwaukee County, and I have a rehearsal space, drums and PA, though I'm willing to travel to rehearsals and gigs. I'm a pretty good lead singer, but willing to sing back up as well, and I would love to focus on great harmonies.
