(The photo is from 1969!). An ex-60s pro-drummer I wish to form a band to play, for free, at charity events to raise money for respective charities. Had a band up and running and gigs booked but, before first gig, major problems with health and jobs of band members meant we had to pack up and I am going to try again. There were definite bookings that I had to pass on and currently work waiting! Also we willl obviously accept paid jobs to help with costs. There is a lot of work out there helping charities and good causes while having some great fun. Hopefully, band members will be like myself, cash comfortable and time to spare. You may still be working or, like me, retired. I am 60 but feel 21! I am based near Solihull, in the West Midlands. Have a hall set up for jams. e-mail me at martinjread@ and we can swop telephone numbers for and have a chat! Thanks, Martin

My playing days in the 60s formed my musical upbringing but I enjoy all forms of popular, rock and blues from the 60s to present. I envisage we will be playing covers and, as most people attending charity dinner dances are 40 upwards, will chose music to suit that will get 'em up and shaking a leg!
Members Of Band
At the moment have myself on drums, bass guitar, the option of a keyboard and rhythm but these cannot fully commit at the moment. So, looking for vocalist with kit, rhythm, lead and keyboard. Happy to have a musician who can sing. I can provide backing and a few lead songs.
I have Yamaha Recording set up with Sabian HXX and Zildjian K cymbals. Beautiful sound.
Bass guitar has Rickenbaker 4003 with an Ashdown rig plus various amps.
