Band to Join.

ABOUT

I have had many years experience working in music and other performing arts - trained as an actor and work in drama/performing arts education. My interests in musical genre is broad, so it's a shame we're only limited to up to 4 in the form above! Currently playing keyboards in a Soul/Motown cover band, but am looking to play other music as well. Available to dep if needed. Have previously played in an Alternative (original) band - London circuit + National tours, and worked in a major London music venue. Absolutely reliable and committed, and a good team-player, I'm looking for at least a reasonably busy band to join. I'd happily tour, but would prefer, if possible, rehearsals to be somewhere Nottingham/Notts area.
Am available as keyboard or bass guitar player. OK for playing cover-versions or original material. I can write songs + enjoy being creative with arrangements (where appropriate!)

Influences

Varied and broad.
Likes include (in no particular order): Soul / Ska / New-Wave / Country Rock / Folk Rock / Punk / Jazz-Rock / Jazz / Rock n Roll / Alternative / Pop / Some Classic Rock / Blues / R n B / Disco / Funk / Roots etc.

Music with integrity and energy (including ballads :)). Also interested in the 'live' presentation of bands - feel it adds so much to the audiences' experience, and can put some bands ahead of the competition .

I quite regularly go to see live bands - recently these have included: The Blockheads / ELO / Dandy Warhols / The Waterboys / David Byrne / Richard Thompson / The Selector / The Stranglers / Alicia Keys / Caro Emerald / Bruno Mars / Paul Weller / Hothouse Flowers / Jools Holland / Squeeze / The Beat ...and many others.

My preference: 1) To play/perform/create 2) To go and see 3) To listen
