Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm looking for a casual band, playing rock/alternative based covers. I have no delusions of grandeur, this is just a hobby. I've been playing for over 30 years, I've done lots of gigs from bars to small arenas and outdoor events, but now just looking for a group of like minded folks playing for the fun of it. I don't do metal, and I'd like to steer clear of the classic and southern rock stuff. If you grew up listening to CFNY (aka 102.1 The Edge), 97.7 Htz FM, and Y108, that's what I mostly played in the day, but I like to explore a bit of Americana, Roots Rock, and some select Country as well. NOTE: I work full time and travel out of country for work at times, I can commit to a weekly practice with a gig a month type thing but I am not looking to relive my youth playing bar gigs every weekend.
