Actually I have been playing sax, guitar, bass guitar, flute, blues harp and singing the blues for over 20 years now. The URB is just recently my
current endeavor. Solo, many different bands from metal to blues, Rockabilly, lots of country and western, and currently a duo or 4 piece when the
venue permits. Oh yeah, I am a big time Zappa admirer, since "Freak Out"
Yeah, I can read music and chord charts and have done a little studio work for and ad agency and some independent film stuff.
We are a house band in a little bar, play the casinos and small festivals here in the Rockies and Texas. Only one CD and truthfully have never really
money in the music business. Thank God my real profession [designer/craftsman] allows me plenty of time to pursue my passions.
I just really love the blues and the people that play it. However hauling around amps, PAs and all the other stuff is beginning to takes its toll on
my old bones not to mention the alcohol and other things that a lot of musicians encounter. As I mature, I find that the music and an occasional
Corona is about all I need to make me happy.
Please tell me your background and experiences. You have no idea how much I admire keyboard people.
