ABOUT

Been absent from playing for to long now and now relocated to Brighton/Worthing area am keen to join new band and rehearse with a view to gigging. Have done my fair share of time in pub and function bands and would be happy to slot in with any in the area. Have a pretty eclectic taste in music so also have a need to do something a bit more challenging in terms of original /experimental music also. Its important for me that I get on well with fellow band members and having a laugh and not taking it to seriously also a plus.

I have a good sound and gear, a good ear (2 actually) my own transport and can hold down a good solid rhythm. I also like to improvise when I get into a good groove, without widdling off all over the place .

Am also not a youngster so if you are teens/twenties and thrusting for the limelight then I ain't your man.
