ABOUT

Basically, our band is a group of guys, mid-40’s to mid-60’s, who have played in a number of bands over the years doing all sorts of gigs - corporate events, charity, weddings, bars, clubs. The guitarist (background vocals) and I (keyboards, rhythm guitar, background vocals) have played together for 20 years; our very accomplished bass player has played in other bands for years (and we’ve played occasional charity gigs with him). I’ve been playing since I was 4 and professionally since the mid-80’s.

I’m recently retired, but we’ve all held, or hold “real” jobs to pay for our musical habits. We’ve all experienced the pleasure of successful bands, as well as not-so-successful band relationships, so we know what we want.

The three of us are looking for an accomplished lead vocalist as well as an accomplished drummer. We want to have fun jamming and to perform occasional gigs of any kind that come our way. We can play music from nearly any genre technically very well; we come to rehearsals song-ready, and we respect each other and constructive feedback. We like to jam any kind of song and challenge ourselves, but also focus on being gig-ready with highly-danceable songs.

As we don’t do this for a living, we don’t want the dynamics of supporting gig requirements of working musicians (no disrespect to them) in the band, however we recognize that we may need them from time to time as back-up for certain gigs. If interested in a musical experience that will put a smile on your face, please contact me!
