Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

I am an experienced and versatile guitarist, possessing an ability to play in all styles of music. Looking for permanent or cover/temp position in covers pub or party band.
I am willing to rehearse and I enjoy “nailing” my guitar parts precisely to original recording, but I am more than happy to put my own interpretation to songs if a band prefers to work that way.
Currently lead/rythmn vocals in a classic covers band playing all the standards from 60s to GnR
Recent gigs have also included cover in a 9 piece soul band and anchor guitar on a Live Aid tribute show.
Experience playing as a 60's duo through to today

I own my own gear and transport, and I am will to travel to gigs anywhere in the UK.
I am easy-going, and mix easily with people. Love engaging the crowd and have a GSOH, life's too short.
Playing is all about the audience for me and having a good time. I'm not a boring stand still musician, its all about a good night out for me.
