ABOUT

I've been a member here for a little while, played for 40 odd years in all manner of original and covers bands. Very broad interest in music. I'm really digging pretty deep in the area of 40s-50s swing/jump blues, and all that that era influenced, including more recent West Coast USA blues style which is fun and dance oriented, like it's jazz/blues influences.
Seeking mature players, who are also passionate about this kind of music, and playing fun gigs.

EQUIPMENT

Strats, Teles (inc. baritone), Gibbo LP/335 style, Harmony, Silvertone, Kay, & Maton archtops, small, low wattage, through to big/loud valve amps, and also digital modeling gear for pretty much any tone known to man, for the classic rock schtick, (that's not really my preferred gig these days, tho' if it's a top-knotch band...)
Suffice to say, I'm dedicated to having the appropriate tone, volume, and attitude in my playing to whatever style I'm playing, whether it's funk, rock, blues, or jazz.
