SEEKINGBass Guitar, Vocalist.
Hi, I'm Darren Baumber, 48 years old, an acoustic and electric guitar player recently moved to St Neots in Cambridgshire.
I am keen to hear from vocalists in the Cambs/Bedfordshre area to play some open mic nights and possibly form a gigging duo. I love all kinds of music, new and old. Prefer to do covers since it makes life easier (for me at least).
I play in a four piece band, the Crumbles and have played in various acts before this. Have just started going to the Oat House open mic in St Neots. See my calendar for my amazing rock 'n roll lifestyle.
Have some experience recording, check out my acoustic instrumentals, a bit of a work in progress as I get to grips with the art of recording!
Up to others to judge but I think I am easy going and confident playing live.
I have studied classical guitar to grade 8 level and passed RGT acoustic grade 7 if exams are anything to brag about.
