SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Interested in anything in the rock-altrock-prog-jazzrock-nufolk area. Have done and am currently doing quite a few covers incl classic rock and pop, well-known and not, keen to gig, either covers or original. The audio on here is just for fun, doesn't represent gigworthy material!. But I have a wide variety of musical tastes (see below) and would be keen on any band that has an unusual slant or unorthodox instrumentation.
Now based south of Chichester but can travel. Good availability and commitment. Contact me via email, neilthebass (at) talktalk (dot) net
