SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I grew up and spent most of my 20s playing guitar. I thought it was very glamorous and wanted to be like the guitar players in the 80s bands on MTV! (Didn't we all?!) After a certain point, family and stuff took me away from music and I gave up guitar.

At some point, you realize music is in your soul, your blood and being! I took up drums for awhile in a band because they were friends and needed a drummer. I also mess around with keyboards a tiny bit.

My real love is the Bass guitar!!! I fell in love the very first time I learned how to play one! I'm now in my 50's and still in love!

I'm looking for a situation where I can get with a group of people and have some fun and see where it goes! I'm not looking to join an already established band if I am going to be required to learn a bunch of songs (I don't like) in a week! I want to have fun but I don't want it to feel like a job! :) I have played open mic nights in a band, back when I was playing drums. I don't have stage fright. I can gig a night or two per week depending on how we get along! If it works, then maybe much more!

I don't drink (much) nor do I do drugs (ever) but that doesn't guarantee that I'm not going to be goofy! Lol! Let's have some fun!
