ABOUT

Seeking fun times and rock'n'roll! Looking for musician-collaborator to start a band somewhere in between LCD Soundsystem and Les Sexareenos--dance-punk band with grit and attitude, mostly original songs.

About me: I am very focused, committed and fairly well-organized. I have experience playing in a band. I have drunk widely and deeply from the myriad pools of rock history and appreciate different music and styles.

My vision: I’m looking to put together a fun, dance-able, engaging live act, from loud trashy garage rock to new wave sort of dance punk.

I'm seeking an honest, respectful, supportive relationship. I am open to criticism as I want to put out a good product, but in the end, having fun & developing connections is more important than being the best.

demo recordings and video available on request.

Influences

I enjoy a wide range of music... old-school R&B, Alternative/Indie, Soul, Jazz, Electronic, Classic rock, Blues-rock, hip hop, Psychedelic/Garage, Noise Rock, post-punk, Power-Pop, Rockabilly, and New Wave, etc.

As a musician, I'm most interested in early era rock-n-roll (blues, R&B and soul) seasoned to taste with a bit of punk rock spirit. The Sonics, The Stooges, The Velvet Underground, Chuck Berry, Tom Waits, early Beatles, Elvis, The Stones, The Kinks, CCR, Ray Charles, The Stray Cats, etc, in addition to newer groups like The Pixies, The Kills, The 5.6.7.8’s, The Gories, The Dirtbombs, John Spencer's Blue's explosion, Old Time Relijun, etc.

That being said... I have no intention of limiting myself to a specific genre. I don't care what the music is classified as, but it gotta have boogie.
