A call for musicians over 30

By shakedown 24 December 2007 7

Unsure if this is appropriate content for theriotact. I’ll give it a go anyway…

I’m looking to start a band of like-minded old(er) dudes – between say 30 and 40 – here in Canberra.

Apart from age, the other primary qualification is that you be a bit…well….conservative in your tastes. I don’t really want to be an old bloke trying to make young blokes’ music. What I’m interested in is putting together a bunch of muso’s who are proficient and experienced, who – despite the passage of the years – still have a bit of mongrel hunger in them, and who are into dad/blues/beard rock stuff : Zeppelin, Allmans, Purple, Bad Company/Free, Trower, Lizzy, AC/DC…you get the picture.

I guess my first preference is for something organic, but not with a capital ‘o’ – I’m not a vegetarian, and I don’t like John Butler. Originals or covers (or a mixture of both) would be fine by me.

Alternatively, a classic metal covers act (playing Maiden, Queensryche, Lucifer’s Friend, Rainbow, Dio, Saxon, etc.) could be fun. Either way, the intention is for this to be a proper working band.

I’ve got a couple of songs of my own half ready to go, or at least to be worked up. I’m looking for guitar(s), drums, bass, the usual drill.

If interested, you can hear some of the stuff I did with my old band here:

Anyway, if this sounds it might be your kind of thing, it would be great to hear from you.

What’s Your opinion?

Speaking of which, The Feldons may be after a keyboard player soon.

As a matter of fact, I tried to register on justbands, but to no avail.

Is there something wrong with the registration system?

Anyway, I appreciate the suggestion.

I’m still enjoying my retirement. 🙂

Post it up on Just Bands though…lots of musos that read it…

Hi. Keen rhythm guitarist and/or drummer (although my guitar is a lot better than my kit!). Very into the bands mentioned, currently working on a small recording project with one other (who has same tastes and is a keyboard/bass player + producer). Is there an email we can get in touch at?
