SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

bassist looking for like minded musicians to form something along the lines of Halford, FFDP, Maiden, Savatage. I am also heavily influenced by AIC. Sevendust, and sh*t that has a serious groove to it.
I am open for any project, but I will not get involved with "core" (grind/death) projects.

What I am looking for-
vocalist must be able to work a crowd (a true frontman), , drummer should know when to blast, and when to slow the tempo...and be able to keep time with a bit of soul/feeling.

I've been involved in the industry long enough to know if you're going to be dedicated musically or just full of sh*t probably within 5 minutes of talking to you. I have a ZERO tolerance for piss-poor business decisions (you really want to drive 6 hours to make $150?), probably have more industry contacts than I care to and UNDERSTAND how the business works.
If you're just one of those people who "just want to get out and play", don't waste my time. If you're dead serious about committing to a level of touring, recording, and performing, then please by all means message me. I also feel it is a bad business decision to play in your local area more than once a month. Over exposure is NOT a good thing, no matter how big you are.
professional attitude AND gear is a must!
