SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Originally from New Orleans, so it's in my blood to have a good time onstage! Last band I played lead guitar for Martin Henry and the Freedom Street Band out of Saint Helens, Oregon.Previously in the "The Goldfire Band". I would be looking to join an already formed act or something that is close to it, or consider helping form one. Can sing lead and backing harmony. Within the last 4 years I have about 85 gigs under my belt, but in my entire lifetime, I have probably done well over 500. Done a bunch of amateur and professional recording. I throw in a lot of jazz chording in my guitar playing. These videos have me playing clean, but I also play with a rock guitar sound. I really enjoy playing music that is upbeat and danceable. Love it when people get up and shake their booty! I also do a decent job of chicken pickin. One very important thing (if you cannot already tell by looking at my live pics) is that I am just as much an performer/entertainer as I am a musician. I believe it is just as important to engage the audience as it is to play great music! I have absolutely no problem with taking my wireless guitar, jumping off stage and running out into the crowd and getting down with them! I also dress as though I am part of a show. Don't drink or drug either. Love to hear from you!
