SEEKING

Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

My band PURPLE CITY is currently seeking an experienced lead guitar player to play a gig of cover and original songs about every quarter of the year. We opened for Kim Mitchell at our last show.

My name is Mike and I am an experienced bass, progressive keyboard, and blues organ player. I have years of recording and gig experience. Previous bands include Dexter Thorax, Mine All Mine, and the Booming Tree Collective. My preferred genre is progressive and classic rock but can play a wide-variety of rock styles such as alternative, metal, and blues.
