SEEKINGBand to Join, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Electronic Music.
I've played primarily in Classic Rock and Blues bands and appear regularly at the Rockpile..
Mostly, I've played lead or second lead guitar, but more recently I took up bass guitar and play both bass and guitar in classic rock and blues bands.
I'm comfortable as well with R&B, funk, soul and reggae, all of which we usually work into our setlists.
For the most part, I've done backup vocals, but have started to take on some lead vocals, though I still have a long way to go.
I'm over 50, so am looking for bandmates of similar age.
