SEEKINGBand to Join.
Ideally I seek a dynamic band, something exciting. I prefer live performance.
Over the years I've been in about 16+ bands, done all sorts of gigs/venues from TV, open-air festivals to small pubs, with 300 gigs. I'm no stranger to live performance, wilder the better.
I need creative and motivated people, probably suit dedicated and committed people. Those with a "passon" - doesn't work for me.
I prefer live performance, brash, exciting, colour, dynamics, don't want the everyday "white/black tee shirt and blue jeans" thing - I like the performance to excite the audience.
I've added a number of different tracks to my profile (see below) that I've worked on, I've done many more. I also do really great recreations of tracks, usually 1980s tracks. Some were used live on stage, either as an audio backing track or live midi sequencer. Some are on YouTube as a "how to".
I'm currently doing the Jon Lord thing and looking for a band needing that unique style of exciting playing.
I'm competent on guitar, so can switch between guitar and keys live on stage although I prefer just keys.
I don't want to be the "lead guitarist". I've played the harmony guitar parts on Lizzy tracks (live). It's fair to say I'm more funk than punk.
Talk to me here: synthsampler at g ma i l com, just compact and add the dots. Don't think about it, just send me a message.

Crystal demo - New Order
Crystal demo - New Order Year: 2018 Genre: Rock
This is a backing track I have made for a band to play over live, it's been used a number of times at gigs. It's a powerful track, needs to be played loud to get the full effect. It's really for New Order people who know the track. I've recreated the sounds by programming up my own synths and making custom samples. Nothing has been taken from the original track. This is a demo, parts have been editied out.
