SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
My name is Neil, I'm 30 years old,
I'm a Guitarist seeking a band to join or musicians to form a band with....
I have some years of experience in live performance with tribute bands, original music and other cover outfits and also some recording experience. I started playing guitar aged around 14. When I turned 18, I went to study Music Practice and Performance at college for 4 years, I wanted to be a Rock Star and my Idols were the Red Hot Chili Peppers...
I can write music and also learn songs quickly.
However over the years, life has moved in other directions for me, I once sold most of my gigging equipment and the music faded away, I have not played much recently, just some teaching and a chord or two from a song every now and then.
I've lost some of the confidence in myself as a musician but I know I can make a go of it again, although I have neglected what I've learned a bit over the years and I have pushed music aside. This has brought me down a bit. Now I have the desire to perform music again as I feel not doing so creates a missing piece in my life.
I haven't practiced a whole lot recently but I'm gradually getting back into some form of practice, although I could do with some inspiration from a group of like minded musicians...
I have a guitar rig with a 200 watt amplifier, and also a PA system with 2x300 watt active speakers and 8 channel mixer, just waiting to be taken on the road or used for rehearsals. I have ideas and a new drive to pursue a career in music...
Get in touch if you are committed musicians who want to or are already playing full time or most days.
I would like to go with a 4 or 5 Piece Rock and Popular Music cover outfit, playing crowd pleasers and our favourites from past to present, in our style. at clubs, functions, weddings, pubs, parties, the streets, big venues or wherever we need to be... I want to just play, create and enjoy music again before I go deaf.
