SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Keyboard.
I have played in original and cover bands since 1977. There have been some long breaks - one of 17 years, but I keep getting back into it. Now with enough time and gear to choose what I do. I am not fussy, nor am I precious about material, but I do not suffer prima donnas or control freaks. I have worked with bands and even as a duo - me and a comedian with a guitar. I am reasonably comfortable with as wide range of styles and I am happy to busk material I don't know.
I am keen to gig as much as I can while I still can. I do try to carry less gear around these days but I am happy to play frequently.
I am looking to join a gigging band but I also have my own project with lucrative gigs potentially available via good contacts in the function circuit. For that I need bass and vocals, possibly guitar. I already have a keyboard player on board, who can play bass and guitar but he has commitments elsewhere.
I am between day Jobs, getting by and trying to make my gear work for me. I have a fully equipped rehearsal room and I am available to practice or gig any night of the week. I have transport to accommodate my gear and PA and more.
