MAGA! Make. Sure. You. Read. This. MAGA!

Looking for guitar players, keys, maybe drummers. Should be able to sing, at least a little. Harmonies rule.

Getting older but still WANT to write, and play, music with accomplished musicians. There is nothing better than the creation process.
You know it when you hear it.

Pick a great musician, famous or not. If they have feel and even decent chops, they are an influence.
