ABOUT

I am a seasoned guitarist and songwriter looking to form a great rock band to play both covers and originals. Looking for a singer, drummer and bassist. Possibly a second guitarist or keyboard player. Age is not an issue - talent, desire, and commitment are. Phase one of the plan is to become a 'distinct and unique' BIG fish in a small pond gigging locally – bars, parties, events, festivals, etc. Phase two? Make a living at playing music full time.

I would like to work with people who want to write, record, and perform original tunes. So the ability to improvise is paramount. It's not as hard as you think.

Important: Being in a band – even one that works only occasionally – takes a lot of work and sacrifice. In a word, commitment. Please consider this before responding.

I am gainfully employed and primarily work days. Barring family, and the odd work commitments, I am open most evenings and weekends.

Influences

Rock 'n' Roll encompasses a whole lotta things and my influences are vast and varied. Anything rock and blues based with a groove will do, but I am a Rock 'n' Roll junky at heart. As a guitarist I love the British invasion bands. Most notable, The Beatles, Zeppelin,The Kinks, Stones, Deep Purple to name a very few. Influences from this side of the pond are Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Band, CCR, Van Halen, April Wine, The Doors, STP, Green Day... I also love a lot of the current bands on the radio. Of course my interest meander into other genres such as folk, country, jazz, etc... Far too many to list here. I can talk about music for days. Radio stations I currently listen to most of the time are 101.1, 94.7, 106.7, 93.9 and 89X.

Of course I am open to suggestions, so if you love making Rock 'n' Roll give me a shout.
