Band to Join.

ABOUT

Looking to do something fun. Rock, R&B, funk or all of the above.
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 2,000 gigs before age 25.
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.
I never give less than 100% on stage, regardless of how many people/ how crappy the gig is/ drunks singing into the microphone/ sub-par pre-gig burrito/ singer blowing the gig money on coke/ or the abundance of brown m&ms.
I 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 (third 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 can post me bopping happily along to 8th notes or playing some crazy slapping/ tapping or singing like my hair is on fire. Lemme know.
