ABOUT

I'm interested in putting together a full sound unplugged "acoustic band," working up some interesting originals and cover arrangements of classic melodic tunes from any era. I'm an old guy/drums/vocals/guitars/songwriter, with a heavy appreciation for British imports from the 60's and 70's, but I'm not stuck there. Anything is possible, including original material if it fits the mold, and someone would actually like to hear it. In a perfect musical world, I would easily find a second guitarist with a unique voice, appreciation for harmony and stylish chops. A bass player with the same skills and interest would come out of nowhere, and we would be off and running. Together, we would hammer out some unique arrangements that would impress the critics, as well as the casual music listener. In addition, my wish list would include a string player, violin viola or cello to flesh out the sound. Highly improbable, but hey, It's a wish list. Accordion could be a possibility as well. If you are any of these people, you have an imagination, the inclination and the desire to create, feel free to "actually" contact me. Male or female, nothing ventured, nothing gained. what's the goal you ask? Without something worthy, gigs are a moot point. Reverb Nation or choatestephenL
