ABOUT

Looking to put together a band to play out. I have some good skills and some areas that need work. Pretty good vocalist within my scope and decent rhythm guitar. I am looking for people who are NOT pro level(yet). It would be good to play with intermediate guys(gals) that have the aptitude to learn and grow. We will practice at a rehearsal studio for a few hours weekly, and depending on enthusiasm and commitment, hopefully expand. The band will split the cost of the rehearsal space in North County(appox. $20 a head for a 3ish hour block. Drums and PA are there) My hopes are that this band will be ready with a few good sets by Christmas. I have been playing solo for so long that it will require lots of practice to get the timing of a full band in sync. I do not need to be the only singer and I don't want to play obscure "cool" stuff played solely to impress other musicians. Primarily 70's-80's straight up Rock and Roll. Petty, Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Cougar, CCR some Green Day, Ramones, Cash and Dylan and the like. Stuff that everyone(at least over 30) should know and love! If this exact stuff doesn't interest you then it probably is not a fit. If this project takes a year to get going, that is fine. If you are better than intermediate and still think you want to embark on this, know that you should have major patience as we will wait for all the band members to get it right. We will work on only a few songs a week until they are tight. If it takes a month of retrying and figuring out, so be it. I have played with some very good musicians and it is intimidating to know that you are holding them back, and a little frustrating when you cannot timely get to their level. This band will grow as a group. together. Ultimately, it is going to be the most rockin' fun bar band in North County.
