J Strong


Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Piano, Mandolin.


Vocalist/rhythm guitarist/writer rebuilding band. Excellent lead guitar and bass on board, looking for a drummer as the last piece of the puzzle. (Playing with the idea of adding a dedicated rhythm guitarist and keyboardist as well.) Alternative based but mixing in different genres in new, subtle and interesting ways. Hit me up at jaymez [dot] d [dot] strong at gee-mail [dot] com (spelled the normal way of course). Check out the samples in the player, and drop me a line at the contact I sneakily provided above. Looking to resume gigging asap.

Got years of touring (a few cross countries and stints on Warped) as well as a few LPs under my belt. Have links for solid shows as soon as the band is tight.
