The Dorie Love Project is a new band comprised of former semi retired professional players. looking to finish the line up.The band is based around one of the best female voices around.The bands blues based sound is a mix of just about every rock band you grew up with( good Bands).
Blues based but not the traditional old school blues.
This is a band with great rhythms, and scotching leads when called for.
Guitars can range from Satriani, SRV,Van Halen, Reo speed- Wagon,Sknard,Doobie Brothers, Journey, Hendrix,Extreme,old school R&B,The Eagles,
DLP's goal is to remake a few covers record them( see how the band sound go's over)( currently recording now.),then releasing the tunes via the net on all of the typical sites, iTunes, cd baby,spotify ect.
If the tunes go over well( which we believe they will) then the next step is to start writing.
Although we do not want to chase the dream any more we do want to be a very good regional band( meaning So Cal, laughlin, vegas , phoenix anything within driving distance)
We would like to play choice quality gigs a few times a month, remake some tunes,write new tunes,and see where it goes.
We are looking for like minded players with the desire to still play.
This means that you will have an open mind and be willing to compromise a bit. Also if you need a gig to pay the bills then this gig aint it. This is also not for week end warriors or garage band players (listen to the videos of the players)
If you think this may be the right situation please email us and lets talk. We are in no hurry to jump into a rehearsal place with a bunch of players. We are looking for the right players that want something long term and are willing to build it. That means putting in some real woodshed time with the band, and not coming to rehearsal and only playing a song once.
A real tight band only comes with chemistry and that only comes with time.
Please keep in mind the sound and direction of the band. We are tailoring this all to vocals first(with out great vocals you aint got $hIt)
We also can not start writing yet( that will come in time) this is where you will really be able to put your stamp on the band, even though you will still be able to do it with the remakes.
It will be the tunes that will really stand out.
Backing vocals are a plus as we are looking for that Eagles, Journey,Van Halen, Heart, and all the other great bands that have great backing vocals.
So are you ready to start the next best thing?

As the 80's progressed and guitar players got better so did Jeff.
Learning all of the 80's metal, and touching on some jazz and really learning the most complicated guitarists of the era.
Studying the Git style of guitar Jeff quickly learned music theory,and really started to blossom as a guitarist.
Entering the 90's Jeff evolved into a good song writer touching on his early roots that combined great chord voicings, along with ripping guitar licks and solos.
Playing in a variety of situations( everything from a side man in cover bands, to writing, recording and releasing a few different CD's with several different bands.) Jeff has played virtually every type of venue.
