SEEKING

Vocalist.

ABOUT

Specializing in the sounds of 'Heavy' organ driven Classic Hard Rock ala Deep Purple, Santana, Vanilla Fudge, Uriah Heep, Steppenwolf, Procol Harum, Rascals. I play a unique, customized, over the shoulder keyboard 'rig'. Am able to duplicate the exact tones from famous recordings of Hammond B-3. Also get 60's Combo Organ sounds (think Doors, Monkees, Iron Butterfly, Animals). Have the chops to pull off some blazing stuff.
On the business side... I am mature, sober, and business-minded. Have good contacts to get bookings and understand marketing and promotion.

EQUIPMENT

Heavily hot-rodded software driven Custom Organ Rig running through a Marshall half stack that enables me to faithfully replicate the authentic tones of the all the big B3, C3, tones and even Transistor Organs (Vox and Farfisa) from those famous original recordings.
Plus, vintage Korg Poly 800 and an 88 note piano giving me the traditional Grand Pianos, Electric Pianos (both Rhodes & Wurlitzer), Clavinet, even the old DX7 piano sound. Plus 2 other 'boards that give me Strings, Horns, Vibes, & more.
Roland 4 channel keyboard practice amp.
Vocoder and Digitek Vocalist Live 4.
A bunch of other 'Toys' for vocals and processors and stuff.
