Bass Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

I'm a Christian singer (tenor) /guitar player. To get an idea of my voice, from the Rock genre, I can song Bono from U2, in Christian Music I can sing Phil Keaggy songs. I've been playing acoustic guitar since 1971 and electric guitar since 1983. I currently meet with another guitar player on a regular bi weekly basis. We previously had a band with a base player and drummer. As a band we were doing coffeehouse gigs. The other guitar player and I have done some open mic performances. Original music and covers in genre's including rock, blues, folk rock, folk, country, and blue grass. We're looking to work with a bass player and drummer.

Influences

Musical influences are almost too many to list but I'll mention the most important in order of chronological impact. Early influences include Elvis Presley, Beach Boys, Dave Brubeck Quartet, Billy Vaughn, Al Hirt, Tijuana Brass, Beatles, Blues Breakers, Rolling Stones, Cream, Doors, Pink Floyd, Spirit, Led Zepplin, Chicago, Animals, Hollies, Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby Stills & Nash, Poco, David Bowie, Elton John, Lou Reed, Alice Cooper. I became a Christian in College, so Jesus Christ became a major influence at that point and new music influences including Larry Norman, Phil Keaggy, 2nd Chapter of Acts, Andre Crouch, Resurrection (Rez) Band, Daniel Amos, Daryl Mansfield. Subsequent influences Include Tom Petty, Taj Mahal, Patty Griffen, Little Walter, Ricky Skaggs, Reliant K, Skillet, Steve Goodman.
