ABOUT

Looking to create a power blues/rock band - think Kenny Wayne Shepherd or Joe Bonamassa - that kind of energy.
I want a band that is committed to delivering high-quality performances - great audio, enjoyable to watch, continually improving.
I need a bass player, drummer and keyboard player.

Some background on me:
I've played in rock and country rock bands since the early '80s. I have played as the only guitar player (4-pc rock band) or part of a 2-guitar lead/rhythm combo (country rock).
I have shared the lead vocal duties and sang backup for the last 2 bands I was in (since 1997).
I enjoy playing powerful guitar-oriented blues rock and well-crafted rock and classic rock.
I have done live sound for my last 2 bands also (except for larger venues). Again, my focus is always on achieving a high-quality mix.
I have written for the last band and have always enjoyed writing/recording. I owned a small recording studio with high-end Pro-Tools rig. I am not a pro audio engineer, but have developed some decent skills/experience to put together a respectable product.
Who I am and what I look for in fellow musicians: easy to get along with, committed to playing their best. I have zero tolerance for drugs and big egos.
