I'm John, rythm guitarist. Been working with a really good friend called Karen. Unfortunately work & family committments have made it almost impossible to carry on as duo for the moment. So Id like to start again from scratch.
I'd like to work with either a new female partner who's confident & willing to try new material-palying an instrument e.g. keyboards along with vocals and a willingness to take on lead vox would be a serious advantage! OR I'd like to team up with other male/female musicians(keys, bass, guitars, other vocals& other instruments) to maybe form a duo/trio/band. I'm not too bothered about age, but I tend to think that maybe people from late 20's/30's upward will be more open minded about music choicesI want to cover country/blues/rock/pop all in a mix & put a good varied set list together (see influences below!).
I even have a possible name whch I'll reveal later-suffice to say it's aimed at having fun!
Practice once a week, more if we can tho it depends on my/your working hours & family committments. I'll be as flexible as I can. I'm based in the Ripley Area. Email me direct- jojan28@, or text me on 07914 192150. PLEASE BE PATIENT WHEN WAITING FOR A REPLY AS I CAN'T USE MY PHONE AT WORK! I will reply asap, I promise. !Feel free to email & tell me what you're interested in. I will upgrade to premium membership when I can, just can't afford the upgrade price at moment!!
