ABOUT

Currently working with guitarist/ vocals. We play mainly blues/ classic rock, we are not a tribute band and therefore not trying to copy the music note for note (or as our original guitarist said "we are not slaves to the recording"), but serious and passionate of the music we do. Although we have been together for a relatively short time, individually we have quite a few years of experience. We are in it mainly for fun but we are looking to do 1 or 2 gigs a month.I am a drummer, bass player & qualified live sound tech (certificate from Grant Mac in 1986)looking to get together for fun,keeping the chops up and possibly do a few local gigs. Began playing & performing in the 70's and played in bands doing everything from Contemporary Christian to Blues, Jazz, Heavy Metal and MOR. Spent about 15+ years in Church Worship bands around Edmonton. Also did freelance work as well as some musical theatre. Can be contacted either through BandMix.ca or fluiddrivebluesband@shaw.ca
