ABOUT

The Retro Pirates (Me) looking to form a 60's genre rock trio or quartet playing music reminiscent of Little Steve's Underground Garage playlist. Early Beatles & Stones, Kinks, Them, Love, Troggs, Animals, Kingsmen, Yardbirds, Roky Ericksen, Sir Douglas Quintet, etc.

Looking for mature, dedicated & positive attitude individuals, NOT movtivated by money, to play unplugged or low volume reinterpreted arrangements. Once a week practice sessions and commitment to play for the joy of making fun & entertaining music. Novice skill level or better and knowledge of three chord songs and 4/4 are the only requirements. Attitude and commitment to playing our best will determine when the band is ready to gig.

Ultimate goal to play out a maximum of four gigs monthly. Targeting a Boomer age audience, which frequents local wine bars, small pubs and eateries.
