Updated 10/16/2021. We currently have a 5 piece band but would still be open to a good acoustic guitarist and/or keyboardist. Sax or other wind instruments would be very cool as well. Currently I'm switching between acoustic, keys and lead guitar. It would be nice to have someone else covering some of those parts. Current tunes we are covering include but are not limited to... Runnin' Down A Dream, Just a Girl, Zombie, White Wedding, Jenny, Torn, What's Up, Hey Jealousy, Wynonna's version of Burning Love, Melt With You, Just What I Needed, She's So High and more.... We practice on Monday nights off Clark Rd and MacIntosh

PART TIME MUSICIANS WANTED: Are there any part time musicians out there that would be interested in covering hits from the 70's and 80's, a few newer tunes and some modern country for the purpose of providing quality entertainment at local fundraisers? Our payment would be the fun of playing and the joy of giving back without the major commitment that most bands require. I haven't been playing lately due to time constraints, but Katrina is telling me that I better start doing something besides working all the time. I just recorded "Steppin' Stone Re-imagined" over the New Years 20/21 weekend to make sure I still knew how to play.

On the video and audio files provided: All guitars, bass, keys and vocals by Steve Martin Smith recorded in my home studio.

The fun of doing covers for me is in the process of putting our own spin on it. Enjoying the creative side of band practice. Making Kryptonite feel like The Brian Setzer Orchestra wrote it. Taking pop/synth one hit wonders from the 80's and lead them from the acoustic guitar or telecaster. Reviving dance bar favorites like Burning Love and Achy Breaky Heart. Watching the dancers enjoy the music.

I do not wish to be the main lead guitarist and I do not need to be the only lead vocalist.

I have a clean 16 foot enclosed trailer to haul gear when needed.

Influences

Late 70's/ Early 80's bands like Journey, Styx, The Cars, Eddie Money, April Wine, Billy Idol and many many more. I love fun, happy music and so do people on the dance floor.
Some of the newer county music is also influencing me - because my wife LOVES it.
