I'm John, rythm guitarist. recently worked with a really good friend called Karen. Unfortunately work & family committments have made it almost impossible to carry on as a duo so Id like to start again from scratch.
I'd like to work with either a new female partner who's a confident strong vocalist & is willing to take on lead vox & try new material. Playing an instrument e.g keyboards would also 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 in their later 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!
The other thing I'd be VERY interested in is forming a sort of tribute band playing all Nazareth songs. For those of you who don't know who they are, they're the original Scottish rock band who appeared in the 70's in the midst of all the glam rock stuff & played powerful rock songs (they were a BIG influence on Axel Rose & quite a few other 80's rock bands). Search youtube-they're still going strong after all these years despite deaths, line-up changes etc. It'd be fun to do something like that with others who like that sort of no-nonsense rock. I have loads of their material so getting copies of songs is not a problem! If anyone's interested let me know please.
Practice once a week, more if poss 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 DON'T COME ONLINE ALL THRE TIME! 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 got other expenses at moment!!
