SEEKINGBass Guitar, Drums.
Singer-songwriter-guitarist, experienced & professional, needs bassist & drummer (able to do backing vocals, ideally) to perform live in London & further afield, with a second guitarist to be added later and Robert playing organ on a few songs. Bio, songs, videos, photos, reviews, etc.. on: https://www.robertcaruso.site/
Robert Caruso has played as opening act for Ray Charles, BB King, John Lee Hooker, Johnny Thunders, Nico, John Hammond, Taj Mahal, Wilko Johnson, Steve Marriott, Tim Rose, Alan Vega and for many (US) bluesmen and Rock acts, and sang with Scotty Moore & DJ Fontana from Elvis' original band and The Yardbirds.
Contacts to play in London and abroad are waiting (not really because of the fake "sanitary emergency", i.e: a dictatorship with no right of free speech, travel, work, etc..) .
Original material, naturally (a few covers too). Some experience needed, but dedication, motivation, ambition, attitude, etc.. essential.
PLEASE, NO TIME WASTERS. We do this for a living, it's not a hobby. If your idea of Rock'n'Roll (rather than a popular art-form & show-biz in its best sense - i.e: providing first-class, professional entertainment for paying customers) is akin to a sport (technical prowess, speed, etc..), a hobby, an ego-trip, Prog-Rock, tribute/cover bands, copying/imitating someone else, etc.. you don't need to get in touch.
Albums The Best-kept Secret In Rock'n'Roll (2013), Love And Death (2014), Three Minutes To Midnight (2016), When My Train Comes (2020) and 17 singles are released as digital downloads on iTunes (& Spotify, GooglePlay, Amazon Music, Rhapsody, Deezer, Napster, etc..) and as CDs on amazon.com. The complete albums are also in 'video format' on YouTube as 'playlists' on YouTube's Robert Caruso (Official) channel.
Robert Caruso's new, acoustic album When My Train Comes - Delta Blues-influenced and recorded live in the studio with an acoustic band (vocals, acoustic and Dobro slide guitars, piano, double bass, drums, congas, percussion, harmonica) - was released on all major digital platforms on November 13th, 2020.

All classic Rock'n'Roll, from the Blues (Robert Johnson, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, John Lee Hooker, etc..) and Hank Williams, Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Eddie Cochran, etc.. to Lou Reed/John Cale/Velvet Underground, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, The Rolling Stones, Hendrix, The Doors, mid-60s Dylan, Lennon, Sly Stone, The Yardbirds, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bowie, Johnny Thunders/New York Dolls, Sex Pistols, Ramones, Joy Division, etc...
There's quite a bit of variety in the repertoire, without wanting to sound like anybody in particular. It can't be labeled 'Punk', 'Heavy Metal', 'Grunge', 'Indie', etc.. but only Rock'n'Roll in the widest sense of the term.
