Are you or ever been accused of being a guitar player? Have you ever played one on TV? Can you play with the power of a rolling freight train being pushed by a tornado? Can you get audiences undivided attention WITHOUT taking your clothes of and or committing a felony in the process?? Speaking of clothes, do you have a style that you own, one that would make even SRV go, “damn dude”?!? If the answer is yes, please, indulge me and keep reading.
The warmer weather is coming and I’m a drummer looking to put a crew together that can make a room jump and groove. To quote Duck Dunn, “a band powerful enough to turn goat piss into gasoline”!
Now, so we’re not wasting each other’s times, here are some of the parameters ;
Rehearse Saturdays starting around noon (side note, once we get, I don’t want to practice much)
Gig Fridays (maybe occasional Thursdays if I can get us into the Oasis/Buck Back Yard)
Vocals some leads but solid backing
Must be willing to help get a crowd to the shows!
No drugs or heavy drunks, sorry can’t deal with the bs
MUST KNOW HOW TO JAM / SEGUE on the fly!
Be fun, responsible, have a work ethic, and BE A TEAM PLAYER!!
I’ve done molstly blues gigs over the last few years and want to change gears. Here are some of the songs that I are in the vicinity of what I want to play – remember, its all about groove and dancability;

Everybody Wants Some – VH
Funky Town – the Psuedo Echo version
Rock n Roll All Night – KISS
You Dropped the Bomb On Me – Gap Band
Stupid Girl – Garbage
Hella Good – No Doubt
Ready to Go – Republica
Hit Me With Your Best Shot (the Live from Earth version) Pat Benatar
Black Cat – Janet Jackson
Play That Funky Music – Wild Cherry
Rock Me Right – Susan Tedeschi
The Mercury – Turnpike Troubadours
Save a Horse – Big and Rich
Uptown Funk – Bruno Mars
Flashlight – P Funk

If I say I- IV-V-I shuffle in E, can you do it?
Could you take any one of those songs and segue it into something else?
Im looking to play places like, but not limited to; 602 Brewing Co, Cedar Street, Oasis, Meanwhile Brewing
Now, brace for impact, as you might have guessed, I’m a little old school (aka, got a few miles to me) and admittedly, I could prolly have some more up to date things but those are groovers to me that never get old and I really like playing. But the thing is, can you dig what I’m layin down here? If so, chances are we’ll have a lot in common and can come up with more fun jams
Here’s a couple of my links, send some of yours, lets talk
