ABOUT

Played in cover bands sporadically the last 15 years. Picked up upright bass about four years ago. Love to find some folk that are serious but fun-loving and just want to play out and/or together regularly and improve. Not trying to make music a second career or be out 'til 3am lugging gear; just want to get better and have fun making music with others. Very open to doing gratis work for non-profits, schools, etc.

A quick hot sports opinion: It would be great if folks that say they are vocalists would put samples on their profiles. I'm fairly half-assed as a vocalist but I put mine out there. Off soapbox ...

Looking for a lead vocal and drummer/percussionist for cover band (drums and rhythm guitar is solid) and female vocal/melodic support (keys, acoustic guitar, flute, anything melodic) for the cover band or duo for intimate gigs.

I can cover the PA and sound duties for gigs less than 200 folk

Late breaking COVID-19 note: Any one out there on Jamkazam? Been doing it with one band buddy and a few strangers. Incredible tool ... for those that don't know, it's a web app that permits musicians to play together without the typical latency issues that prevent you from playing together on Zoom or MS Teams or whatever else. It actually works! ... tons of fun ... re-unite with your bandmates while staying safe! Hit me up if you are interested in it.
