SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Veteran keyboardist of 40+ years is looking for the right opportunity to join a committed, working act focusing on 70's-80's key-heavy bands like Journey/Kansas/Styx/Foreigner/REO Speedwagon/Allman Brothers/Deep Purple and others. Looking for 2-21/2 weekends per month, with regional travel an option depending on the opportunity.

I am passionate about playing music authentically and with attention to details, because details separate the good from the great. Strong vocals and harmonies matter to me. Great musicians and average vocals are a recipe for mediocrity and bad bar gigs. While I take absolute pride in my playing, I checked my ego a long time ago, and I have zero interest in bands that have them. Same on drama. At the end of the day, I'm just looking to be a part of something special. And if I can't help a band sound at least as good, if not better than before I showed up, then we shake hands and go our separate ways.
