Looking to play pubs, weddings, functions etc. I've got 25 plus years experience, can perform backing vocals, and I am excellent performer.
I have a low-slung rock n roll style, but am also extremely versatile (pick and fingers, soft or hard, depending on the song) and know most of the song standards. I've got compact, light, but powerful gear, transport and good communication skills. I'm also willing to dress up (or down) for events.
I'd also be keen to form a brand new cover band with the right people.
I also play for Wellington originals rock band Old School Road www.osrband.com, and was the former bassist for now defunct covers band The Shebangs.
