Hi all, I'm a bass player looking for interesting originals project in the Colchester/Essex Area. I've played in rock, blues and hip hop style things as well as in folk and acoustic bands. I don't currently have a preference for what sort of musical genres/styles I really want to play but preferably it would be with folk that are interested in a wide selection of music.

I moved to Colchester about a year ago and really have the urge to get something up and running locally so am looking for people that have the time and inclination to write and rehearse.
