ABOUT

Looking to start or join band. Looking to write new material and do all style covers. I play both rhythm and lead guitar. I'm playing lead in my song on the playlist. Its dripping with reverb.
I'm comfortable being a Rhythm Guitarist in a Trio but would like more members. I've spent a lot of time mastering chords, and
I'm looking for a lead Bassist, someone who can play lead lines and a drummer that can play with dynamics (loud and soft). A Sax would be awesome too...as well as a lead guitar, even organ.

I play a lot of Surf Rock which is just extra reverb to make a song more epic....Most people don't know what surf is...So your already locked in for no competition. If you've ever seen the music from Pulp Fiction, I know the Soundtrack...People really love it...I've gotten invited a lot to play at block parties
and Halloween Parties, I like to be able to make music all ages can enjoy....

I love Rockabilly for soloing. Brian Setzer and Dick Dale are are my favorite guitarist and influence my style....I've been learning Swing Jazz, The first song I wrote and performed was Jazz.

For covers I know a lot of Classic Rock and 90's alternative i.e. Sublime, as well as Surf Rock ,and Rockabilly, Also I have a thing for Theme songs. I like to play instrumental psychedelic music.

I love music that makes people want to dance, like Funk...I love jam bands as well...
I don't really want to stick to one style. I don't want to be limited...But It would be fun to jam and then perform. Music should always be about having a good time. Also when writing music I like to blend styles of the other members style with mine...
