My band has just split up due to folks moving away. We played at my rehearsal studion once a fortnight, mostly mid-week for about 18 months and had a blast. The idea was were were going to do a couple of gigs per year - and record the set just for fun, friends and family.
I really like rock / country / blues. Anything from ZZ Top through to Genesis, Floyd and back to the West Coast. I don't really care.
I need another band - or happy to piece one together. My rehearsal space can cope with a 4-piece band, probably no more.

Members Of Band
Last 10 years I've been in three bands, a Harley Davidson bunch of guys, playing typical Bikers sets, then a trio of guitar / bass / drums, mostly playing quite escoteric baloney from Wishbone Ash and some other crazy sh*t that I didn't really like. Finally, probably my best sounding band, just split up due to moves. I've also deputised for Meme Detroit (during her album launch), Mother Popcorn and Spitfire (Warwickshire based rock band). I've played a ton of open-mic nights with some names artists too. Comments are that I'm very tght, responsive and LOUD.
I happen to sport a mild Mohican hairstyle, I live in Dorridge and I absolutely INSIST that we rehearse at my place since I have all the toys, it sounds great here - all you need is some headphones to protect your ears (although we do normally play via the PA like any normal; rehearsal space. I quite often record rehearsals via multi-track (Tracks Live) so we can master a mix if we happen to play something particularly worthwhile. I like to mic up absolutely everything so that I can also hear the whole mix via headphones (and handy for recording too).
Private & dedicated rehearsal studio in Solihull with big Tama drum kit plus 4 x Crown amps driven via 18-track digital mixer, active cross-over with 2 x 18 EV subs, 2 x 15 mids, 2 horns. I run Shure mics (including the kit) and happen to have 4 x stage monitors (although redundant now probably due to in-ear mon technology). Big outfit. Big sound too.
