SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Seeking established or startup for fun and comradery with other seasoned pros. Gigs should be covers or tribute, but let's give people a little credit and try to avoid the scrap that ruined the bar scene long before covid.

I learn the material *before* practice, and I lug my own gear. Willing to travel some for practice, more for gigs. Committed? Hell yes. Serious? Nope, Not even a little. Find me on FB. Sorry, no recordings at this time.
