SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Looking to do something fun. Rock or funk or both.
Money would be good, but driving to Palm Springs to play for 5 hours for $50 is probably not my thing.
Started playing in clubs at age 15, did 3,000 gigs before age 23.
More of a bass player who also sings, but I do sing lead from time to time. Just not my calling card.
Moved to LA from Boston to go to Musicians Institute many moons ago.
No patience for drama.
Have a regular day time gig.
I envision setting up a band to do corporate gigs in the next year when I finish building my home studio (second one). Joining one would be easier.
Music I posted is pretty straight forward stuff, interesting Beatles cover and a tune with a nice bass solo. Plenty more where that came from. I'll toaster some lower res versions so you can hear harder, funkier, etc tunes.
