SEEKING

Bass Guitar, Upright bass.

ABOUT

Versatile and experienced guitarist and bassist available. I like any good music with a good feel, particularly retro styles: rockabilly, southern rock, blues and country with a bit of grit and attitude. Good backing and lead vocal.

Ideally looking for a bassist or guitarist into 50s and 60s rock and roll / blues / country to help develop a small group with experienced drummer (already on board) for a few local gigs and festivals.
