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... far too many to list. Of course my interest meander into other genres such as folk, country, jazz, etc. Radio stations I currently listen to most of the time are 101.1, 94.7, 106.7 and 89X.

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