The Sundrifters


Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums.


Singer / Composer (BMI) / Guitarist
The Sundrifters is a surf/beach/(and a bit of island reggae) band I am putting together. Mostly instrumental surf with about 25% vocal numbers. Originals and covers. Need drummer, bassist and rhythm guitarist/(possibly 2nd lead occasionally). Need some simple backup vocals. Age range probably 35 - 65, but will consider anyone who thinks they'd be a good fit. Target is to play 1 to 2 set gigs about 5-8 times a year on Eastern Shore and surrounding states. Have full time job, so money is second to fun band mates, being prepared when we play out and feeling the passion and feel of the beach/surf/island sound. Not really focusing on the Beach Boys type sound. Band should be fun, not a job...

Also open to joining an indie, college rock, surf instro or alt-rock band that plays some originals. No 100% cover bands, no classic rock (except New Wave). Have experience putting together set lists, running practices, coordinating gig logistics or arranging music within the band if needed.

I'm a highly energetic performer who looks, thinks and acts younger than my years.
