SEEKINGBand to Join, Keyboard, Drums, Bass Guitar.
I'm a lead/rhythm guitarist looking to form a 5-piece band in the West London area comprising vocalist, keyboards, guitars, drum and bass; for pub gigs and occasional events anywhere in the South East. Looking to play pub rock/blues and some jazz numbers but I prefer to avoid playing 'popular' standard covers as a general rule, as there's a wealth of lesser-known stuff out there that's already written and just waiting to be resurrected. Either way, I believe that any repertoire has to revolve around the vocalist's abilities and character.
My playing style tends to be laid-back improvisational/interpretive and interactive with what the other musicians are doing. In other words I play what I feel, sometimes can be loaded with energetic expression, other times just hanging in the background. It all depends on what else is going on ...
I have sufficient time available to make this work and am looking to get rehearsing soon. I like to use SongGalaxy as a method for everyone to learn the songs and their individual bits so that when we get together to rehearse we can hit the ground running.
