85 Factor


Band to Join, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Background Singer.


Looking to start up a new band closer to home. I’m a versatile vocalist and guitar player capable of both rhythm and lead work. Fun with like-minded professionals with a love of music is my primary goal, but I would like to occasionally gig. My ideal band includes multiple singers, two or three guitar players, a strong rhythm section, and the ability to add keys and horns as we collectively develop a groove and band identity. A mixed-gender band would be ideal, but good chemistry and friendship amongst band members is a must. Contact me at dpblaik at jeemail dot com if you’re looking to start up something new, or get out of a creative rut by potentially working on original material together.
