In 2000 I formed , managed and played in the Vancouver Island bluegrass band the Back 40 Boys. We had a very successful 9.5 year run. We played local pubs,Senior Centers, Weddings,Special Functions and Festivals.
I've just moved to the east coast and currently seeking out local jams to find my place in the music community.
Ideally I would like to meet a innovative acoustic guitarist and a solid upright bass player to rehearse and look for local gigs.
I would tour if the right situation was presented !
