Tony Schmidt


Band to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Harmonica.


Bass player who can sing some. Love older, more traditional blues, but some newer stuff is ok. I like Altered 5 for instance. Like Pat Travers band. Willie Dixon.
I'm retired so don't have many restrictions on my time.
Metal I like is Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Machine Head, Chimaira, Devil Driver, Pantera, other groove metal, thrash, power metal bands. I like blues and metal equally. Would live to play in a band that gigs, maybe around 3x a month, am flexible. Hopefully not too far away for driving to practice, like an hour is fine, maybe 2 for a great band that I couldn't quit. I don't slap, more of a roots player with embellishments, but still pretty skilled technically. I don't drink/smoke/drugs. I'm punctual, responsible, pleasant, no drama.
