First of all, I am an ear player, so I don't read charts. But if you want a very solid rhythm, or pro tasty lead with tone with feeling, emotion, and breathing space....I can do that. I can sing lead...backups, my range is comfortable at A, but can at times hit a B. I have any gear I need. I am in my fifties.
Looking for dedicated folks who put the music first. If this is to pay rent, I politely decline. If this is to get away from your spouse...same response. I am not as concerned about the genre as I am adding to a group who knows the difference between practice and rehearsal, knows how to be serious, yet have fun doing it, and who can bring it.
Desires....eventually play at least bi-weekly....not touring, with goal set on high pay gigs after the sets are built. Festivals and corporate gigs are a good goal. Getting better each time we meet is a big hope for me.
Deal breakers....smoking, blowing off or late to practice as a habit, lack of humility, all copy tune set lists, regurgitating the same stuff everyone else has done for years, and players who do this for an ego boost.
Schedules.....I have a job that begins at 11am, so I can play most any night. Work till 7 so practice will have to be after that...or on Sunday. I pick up parts quick.
In the end, I seek hard working humble people with experience, who like to have fun, keep their life's priorities straight, and have felt that on stage experience of pros elevating each other. I miss it so....
The contact is my business, so understand if I have to call you back. At work from 11-7 Mon thru Sat
