SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Moderately experienced guitar player, late 40s with a wife and a day job, looking for a band that might gig once a month or so, maybe rehearse once or twice a month. I don't have the time for a full-time working band, but I take any commitments seriously and will always be well prepared for any gigs or rehearsals. Most of my gigging experience is with R&B/soul-based stuff, but I have broad tastes and would be open to playing a lot of different styles.
