ABOUT

Veteran drummer, and guitarist with over 20 years of experience looking for a VOCALIST to form a band to perform COVER/TRIBUTE and ORIGINAL SONGS locally. We are located in Tampa and Pinellas County. PIANO/KEYBOARDS/RHYTHM AND BACKGROUND VOCALS are a huge plus but not essiential.

We are currently seeking TALENTED, EXPERIENCED MUSICIANS who are GOOD TEAM PLAYERS and can play nice in the sandbox. We are all professionals with careers outside of music and likewise we ONLY want people with PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDES and CLEAN RECORDS.

We are very easy to get along with and work with. We take the music serious and practice on our own. We also like to make sure everyone has a voice in the band and creative process. We aren't looking to force anybody to do anything they dont want to do. We are a band and want everyone to be equally as important as the other. It takes all of us to make great music.

Along with doing covers, we also welcome the chance to do original music. So if you have some originals that you would like to work on we would be happy to work on them with you.
