SEEKINGBand to Join, Keyboard, Drums, Piano, Vocalist - Alto.
My name is Mark, I have been playing guitar since the age of 8. I have played in a number of bands over the years playing a mix of originals and covers, playing guitar and now and then singing. I write and arrange and enjoy recording and playing live. I have taken a few years out of gigging but have never stopped playing, just focusing more on acoustic. Looking to get back into a small band with piano/keys, bass and drums, possibly starting with a few covers but developing into a more original sound.
