Hey fellow music lovers!!!

I've been singing and playing guitar in bands since my teens, but have always considered myself as more of an entertainer than a "musician". Originally from Montreal, I lived in Kingston for eight years before moving to Cornwall in Feb 2017. Now, after a good 2 year run with the Tollgate band (https://www.facebook.com/cornwallrocks/) it's time for something new...

I prefer music with a fair amount of energy to it. Softer/slower songs do add diversity and dynamics to the mix, but ultimately I want the audience to get up and dance! I'm a firm believer in tailoring the music to the audience. Playing rock to little kids or the elderly is kind of weird, but give me a good "party" type crowd and let's burn the place down!!!

A 5-piece band with drums, bass, two guitars and keys (with everyone doing vocals) would be my ideal, but main thing is to have a good time and enjoy. Have a home life so I'm not looking to go on tour. I'd much rather rehearse once a week and pick up some fun (paid) gigs once in a while.

Always enjoy meeting new people, so if you have similar tastes in music, drop me an email at mr_hollywood@cogeco.ca, or message me at @hollywoodcornwall and let's see what happens.

I've done sound reinforcement professionally and have a solid technical background, so if you ever need someone to man the mixer for a live show, I may be able to help out...

There's also a bunch of song lyrics and tech stuff on my personal site here:
