ABOUT

Lead Rhythm guitarist looking to form or join a band based in or near Irvine playing classic rock covers, folk, blues and whatnot. Not apposed to doing/writing original stuff too. Just looking to continue to grow musically and have fun.

I'm a guy with a day job who loves to play with other musicians. For the past 2 years I've been jamming with friends every Friday before work at a local coffee house.

I have some audio at ://stevesfriends

Members Of Band

My vision is primarily a rock and roll cover band. What we end up covering will be up to the group and based on what we can pull off with the talent at hand. If we have a killer female vocal that can do The Pretenders, Heart, and Joan Jett we'll do a lot of that. If we have a male vocal who can do Van Morrison, Mick Jagger, and Tom Petty we'll cover a lot of those. This is classic rock - and rock cross over.

EQUIPMENT

I have a Bose L1 Compact System (guitar amp and pa) with one guitar and mic input. It can also feed into a mixer.

My primary guitar is a Gibson Les Paul Studio hard body electric with 2 Humbucking pickups. I also own a low end Fender Strat and an Ovation acoustic electric.

Boss ME 70 multiple effects pedal.
