08-25-11 – Portland, OR>Seattle, WA – I recently recorded a six-song CD of old-skool blues and jazzy originals, now I am looking for musicians in the area who interested in rehearsing and performing regularly.
We are not talking about endless I-IV-V shuffles, but actual songs by artists such as Guitar Slim, T-Bone Walker, BB King, Albert Collins, and many others.
Knowledge of theory/harmony as well as familiarity with country blues, electric blues, rhythm and blues and jazz/blues is important, as is the ability to play the appropriate part on any given song and listen to guidance in this area (ie if you are playing the wrong part i will tell you).
I sing and play guitar as well as writing and arranging– if you have a good voice and have some originals or other tunes that fit in, you will have your chance to shine. Need bass and drums, and either a keyboard player or 2nd guitar as i like to be able to concentrate on singing when i am singing. If you are a guitar player, you must be a great rhythm player. If so, you will get your chance to solo.
First and foremost i am looking for a bassist, other musicians can be found or hired as we go.
The idea, of course, is performing and getting paid on a regular basis– however you must be willing to put in the work first.
I have a really nice rehearsal spot, it is 20-25 min out of town so you need a car. Must be able to commit to at least two rehearsals a week.
08-14-11 – Boston, MA>Hartford, CT – Bass, lead guitar, harmonica, drummer are looking for a blues minded singer. Plus if you can play rhythm guitar or piano.

07-01-11 – Portland, OR>Seattle, WA – We are looking for a creative and skilled musician, hopefully a bassist who would like to get together a couple times a week and work on set lists for an eventual band. Focus on fairly advanced but subtle chops. i sing and play guitar, write and like to co-write with other good writers. some genres I prefer are blues (old school, t-bone walker, guitar slim thru buddy and bb), good rock (dire straits, the band) jazz blues and modal jazz, reggae funk jams, etc. but mainly genre-busting styles. I have originals and other tunes charted and demoed. If you play keys as well as bass this is great for songwriting and arranging. Once we have a core set of material it is a fairly simple process to get shows, hire on a drummer, etc. — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: 1
I’m looking for a professional singer to front a blues/jazz band. We do 1940s & 50s style blues, jump and jazz in the style of artists like T Bone Walker, Joe Turner, Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, Count Basie, etc. Must be willing to learn new original material that I have, as well as covers of songs from artists like are listed listed above, and have pro appearance. This is a professional band with a four piece horn section with arrangements. Will also be recording a new CD when everything is in place.
01-10-11 – Boston, MA>Hartford, CT – We are looking for a seasoned guitarist with strong lead vocals and a good ear for backup harmonies. We are an older bunch of down to earth, serious about our music, musicians who are looking to get out gigging as soon as we can. God knows how many years we have left to do this! Hopefully you’ve cut your teeth on classic rock so you will have the feel for the music we plan on playing. You must be willing to rehearse at least once a week, have your own equipment, transportation and be a team player. Some of the artists that we will be covering include Free, Beatles, Dobie Gray, Creedence, Hendrix, Spirit, Stones, Dylan, Clapton, Syndicate of Sound, Elvis, Doobie Brothers, Tom Petty, Badfinger, Bad Company, Roy Orbison, T-Bone Walker, The Band and Everly Brothers just to name a few. Aside from being a good musician I am looking for someone who’s chemistry will fit in with the rest of the group. We have all been there and done that, so to speak, and looking to get out once again and play for a live audience. Our expectations of making it “big time” have long drifted downstream and there are no egos to contend with. We are all about the music but a few bucks in our pocket won’t hurt either along the way. Our original guitarist has to leave for personal reasons and as much as we hate losing him we need to find a replacement to fill the void. That leaves us with only one guitarist, bassist and drums. If you are a serious player who is local and looking for a great bunch of humble guys to hang and make music with then drop me a line or leave me your phone number and I will give you a call.
