If you are reading this, then you saw my post on http://newyork.craigslist.org/lgi/muc/ or LImusiciansnetwork.
I am a 47 year old amateur musician with classical training in keyboard and drums and self-training in bass (a little) and outlaw (unconventional tuning) uke. I'm looking to form a new band that writes, performs, and records original music. My main influences are from the late 70s through 90s and include 70s and 80s pop, postpunk, shoegaze, hard rock and electronica. (see future post for my 50 favorite bands)
I've played in the Rochester, NY (late 80s) and Madison, WI (late 90s) music scenes and experienced the Triangle, NC scene in the early 90s.
Most recently, I've played around Stony Brook with some work colleagues but that disintegrated as people moved away or got too busy.
I'm looking for guitarists and a drummer (but other skills are welcome) to synergize with in a band, writing, recording, and performing original music. We need band members who are mature (in attitude if not age) and drug free.
I'm in the Rocky Point/Miller Place area and would need to meet near this area due to my home & family situation (I am a caregiver to my spouse, who is physically handicapped, and our 6 yo daughter.
