I'm looking to form or join a band around blues/classic rock influences from 50's 60's early 70's era. Like minded, close aged, relaxed, but dedicated, determined musicians. I believe with the right people, a good band, and determination, you can still grow and make a living, in the music industry. An ideal setting would be just freely coming up with songs, eventually forming into albums, with band mates you can go off of and groove with everyday. I don't mind how many people would be in the band, just if the similar taste is there. I'm looking to do this long term as a career.
I'm 17 finishing high school, in Burbank, CA. Been playing guitar seriously now for 2.5 years. I have a stratocaster, telecaster, Gibson les Paul, effect pedals, Pearl Drum Set, 1962 Hammond A100 Organ, Marshall DSL 50 amp, 1970 Fender Dual Showman Reverb amp head with 12x5 speaker cabinet. I play both rhythm and lead equally, recently. It's come the time where I think this is what I want to be doing as a career and have become desperate enough to start creating accounts like these on websites like these, I stumble upon. Schools almost over and have no one I know of in my area that is interested in the same music or dedicated to do this long term. It gets lonely not playing with people when having the urge, I wouldn't mind if someone wanted to jam, through online, that's across the country. I'm more introverted and don't go much places, that would have possible musicians so I resort to this, for now. The musicians I'd like are ones that are layed back and chill, know there stuff, and easy to get along with. I think of myself as being open minded to new ideas and relaxed, most of the times. I don't know a practice schedule as of now, since I don't work yet, so I guess I'm available everyday during the week. Contact me at [email protected] if you want. Thanks for reading.
