  • Do you need a bassist/vocalist/drummer for one gig or longer (Including fill-in gigs, last-minute gigs, touring (I have a current Passport), or studio session work)? Your search is over! Presently residing in CA (California); can relocate if necessary.
    Professional & on time - NO restrictions on travel or length of time to be on tour. Dedication to performance excellence is all that matters to me. No ego here - I live to create & enjoy quality music with talented, dedicated musicians.
    Vocal range is high tenor (Great harmony/lead parts). Ability to adjust from one part to another with no delay. The bottom line is that I’m an "all-in" player; I do whatever it takes to be successful in every sense of the word, totally prepared, always 110% ready for every gig.
    Requesting paying gigs only please, unless for a really great cause. Rate of pay determined on a per-gig basis (Due to the details and requirements of each gig). You have my word/my promise that I will always go "above and beyond" what is required so that I can give you, the employer, the best of me and my talents. I'm looking forward to playing great music with you soon!

  • Guitar player looking for people to play with. Goal: to experience (again) the joy of playing music. 40 yrs. old guy, been playing since 15, but not very consistently, so I am not a sweep-picking virtuoso; as such, I would prefer to play rhythm first and maybe later can share lead-soloing work. Given my age, I would say I am interested in playing music from the late 80's (guns, motley, poison, etc.), 90's grunge era (Alice, Pearl Jam, STP, absolutely love Tool), although of course it would be awesome to include some 60's-70's rock (Zep, Yes, Crimson, Floyd, etc.), or even some blues (Freddy King, Cream, Clapton). Although I have a family and full-time job, I can commit to rehearsing at least 3 hrs per week, and work to learn songs as accurately as possible, so we can sound good. Also willing to share the costs of renting rehearsal space (within limits of $$ ). If this is something that sounds interesting, send me an email and lets chat. Thanks for reading.

  • Guitar playing solutions to help you play much better guitar! There is always a time when we encounter issues or slower progress on guitar. How do we improve and get past that? Is it slow chord changes? Is it knowing how to improvise that is causing you grief? How do we figure out those chords to our favourite song? How do I play and sing at the same time? There are many questions for novice and intermediate players. Guitar lessons that are actually tailored to your specific level and needs are the answer. I am a registered guitar/bass/theory tutor (London College of exams, UK) based in Ottawa east. The focus of guitar lessons is always based on your specific needs and goals. Decades of experience in classroom and stage are ready to be shared with you. Guitar lessons are a definite plus, but if you don’t achieve your goals, is it a good investment? Contact me for details and an assessment of your needs/goals. Robn at:
