Please post samples of your talents on your Bandmix profile, even rough ones , so people can hear what you sound like. Otherwise it's hard to tell what you're all about. THANKS!!!
Age is a number, so if you're cool with older dude, I'm cool with you. Just need a good fit and people who just share a vision, fun, max 2 sets, money isn't goal (but we'll take it), record and have fun playing out. Currently play lead guitar in surf instro band - Agent Octopus (see videos). I'm an ocean person at heart, a Christian and a Red Stripe drinker (Island beer mon...).
I love surf music, new wave, indie rock, modern surf rock vocal music and original melodic music.
1st Band idea: The Sundrifters a surf/beach/mellow pop/island/ reggae. Mix of originals and covers (1960s-2021). Playing spring/summer mostly, happy hours and events. 70% vocal/30% instrumentals (surf) and two sets max! (three sets is work).
Sound is whatever it takes to get the feel of the ocean, the beach. I'd like to sing 50%, but want better (or at least my level) female/male singer for the other 50%. Aloha/Beach fun feel to this band. Love to harmonize.
2nd Band-I'd also consider joining an Indie Rock/Alt Rock Original project that mixes originals with covers. Preferably rhythm guitar, but can play some lead. Some lead and backing vocals.
Looking to stay around 20-25 miles or so of Kent Island, Md (Anne Arundel/Talbot/Queen Anne's counties). Target is to play out 4 - 8 or so times a year, have fun and build friendships within a band. It would be great if we could mix a couple creative, passionate players with a couple technically sound, solid musicians.
