ABOUT

1974 tribute band? Well, maybe not but still some of the best music ever made, IMO. Experienced lead singer/bass player looking for players with similar musical interests to start with classic rock covers and see where it goes. Core influences from 60's to 80's but some fun recent stuff, as well. Personality and style as important as musicianship and would like to play gigs when we have the right lineup. Not too intense, though - I am pretty mellow and this is mostly about getting a good group of people together to make some good music and share our enjoyment of music with others. If something more evolves, so much the better! i had played with the same band for over 10 years but life happens, and several of the guys moved away. Now seeing if I can find another group of musically and personally compatible players.
As you know, starting a band is a pain! To keep things simple, how about 1 guitar and drums to get started? (Not trying to discourage anyone from responding, though - especially you keyboarders!) Backing vocals would be awesome, too. Prefer players located in the same geographic area (roughly north Phx/Sdl to Anthem?), otherwise consistent rehearsals becomes too big a challenge.
If this sound interesting to you, drop me a line!

EQUIPMENT

Alembic Epic bass, Trace Elliott BFC 1000 - it is a behemoth though, so for the past several years been playing through the board and using an Orange Crush stage amp. Easier to go wireless that way, too. Behringer XAir 16 board, Sennheiser in ear monitors and wireless guitar body pack. Shure Beta87A mic
