SEEKINGKeyboard, Saxophone, Vocalist.
I play blues guitar and am looking for other serious musicians who want to play a modest circuit of clubs full time. I need a drummer, bass player. keyboardist, and maybe a sax player or 2nd guitar. Vocal talent helps, and experience fronting a band is good. Age means nothing, but the blues does require a bit of living it to play it right. There will be some jazzt stuff as well, and the list will be peppered with originals. I have access to a studio when we are ready.
I have modest vocal skills and play 12-string and acoustic in addition to my main instrument, electric guitar.
I spent a number of years touring and had several stints as a studio player and orchestrator.

My influences include Clapton, early Jeff Beck, Muddy Waters, and most especially T Bone Walker. I have played virtually everything from the Beatles and Hendrix to Sting. Not very fond of some of the latest trends mostly because they seem to have little understanding of balance and orchestration. Everyone just bangs away at full volume while the singer eats the mic. (LOL)
I can also play Celtic music and enjoy everything from the Clancy Brothers to Clannad.
