ABOUT

I am a guitarist who's primary interest is the blues, I also love Blues Rock, R & B, Rock and Roll, old twangy Country music, Surf, Bluegrass, Zydeco and Swing.
I'm looking to start or join a band that rehearses up to, but not more than, once a week and plays the odd Saturday (I prefer events but a nice Pub will do). I'm in my fifties and have a busy day job, but I still want to keep my hand in. If you're in the same boat you'll understand.
I played with the 'Hammer Daddies' out of Hamilton for several years and before that with 'On Tap' and 'The Gardner Westbound Blues Band' out of Toronto. I sang lead and some backup and I shared rhythm and lead duties with the other guitarist in the band.
I have good gear and a P.A.
If this sounds interesting to you, email me at jhennessey at sympatico dot ca.
