SEEKINGLead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
I'm a professional musician who is proficient on Guitar, Drums and Vocals. I've recently left the band I was playing in based in Austin and would love to find something more local. I have over 20yrs experience playing well over 2000 live shows and toured the country. If you're a band looking for Drummer, Guitarist or Vocalist then I just might be your guy. I can play a wide variety of music including: Rock, Blues , Jazz , Funk , Soul, Country, Alternative and on and on. You name it and I've likely played it. Check out my page ://./venancio and you'll hear me playing guitar and singing on every track. If you want to hear my drumming you can see and hear a few live clips at ://./Ven9512 or ://./jeremysteding I'm not really looking for startups but will be willing to consider if the situation is right. I'm willing to do covers or originals it all depends on the band. Also availible for studio work!
