Hi, currentlty looking for a band to join and fairly open to ideas and suggestions as to what so I would look forward to hearing from you. I do have a career so I am not looking to get signed, been there and done that and to be honest really just want to enjoy playing live music again.
I have loads of experiance, I've been playing for 20 years have done gigs to one man and his dog to a few thousand people live to 25,000 on BBC radio... (apparently I'm not sure how they check that..)
I have played for quite a few bands over time, from basic covers, originals to a full 8 peice funk and soul band which was amazing fun but as said I am open to suggestions. Sometimes its just a good thing that people have a good level of chemistry together.
I have also done quite a lot of studio work and I've recorded demo's, singles, EP's and an album which was all good fun. As far as ability goes there isn't much I can't do 'but' I'm not Steve Via and like all musicains I have my strong and weak points.
I am looking for a band that is commited and fun to be in. As said I am not looking to make it but I really want to get back into playing live music in a band that is enjoyable to be in. Would love to get back into a funk/soul scene but also open to acoustic music, traditional covers bands, some orignals bands etc.. Really not into heavy rock/metal etc...
