ABOUT

Contact Info: lexicon@ca.inter.net; 905.829.9055 (office); 905.829.9599 (home).

Please Note: I see too many adds for good musicians that do not leave contact info. If you are interested in what follows, please respond directly by email (lexicon@ca.inter,net) or by calling my office number (905.829.9055) or calling at home (905.829.9599).

I have been playing keyboards (mainly piano and organ, some synthesizers) for over 35 years; mostly covering "classic rock" bands of the 70s and the 80s. I have lots of stage experience playing in many places around the planet (Ontario, US, Latin America, Middle East). For about 12 years or so, I was a member of a successful working Deep Purple tribute band playing all over Ontario and Quebec.

I am very much interested in 1) forming a solid classic rock/progressive rock act (first choice); or, 2) joining a solid classic rock/progressive rock act (second choice) covering either a tribute band or doing a wide selection of classic rock/progressive bands of the 70s and early 80s. I am not interested in doing strictly blues or soft rock.

Currently seeking a bass player and a singer who can play bands listed under "Infleunces".

I am very committed, and looking to gig about once a month. If interested and serious, please email lexicon@ca.inter.net - or call me directly at my office (905.829.9055), or at home (905.829.9599). Please DO NOT try to contact me through bandmix as my internet access is questionable and my bandmix account is limited (free).

Would love to hear from someone who shares the same passion. When you email or call, please leave complete contact info (email, phone number, etc.). Thanks and Keep Rockin'
