Sex Male
Band/Artist Name Ben J Foster
Description I have been playing open mics and gigs solo around London since I moved here 18 months ago, but I've decided that that isn't really for me right now, so I am looking to form a band separate from that (i.e. NOT a backing band for my solo work) to perform mostly originals but some covers as well. I play guitar and sing, and a friend of mine is on bass, so we're looking for multiple musicians, including: Guitar Drums Keys (more Piano and Hammond than Programming and Mini-Synths) Sax Ability/willingness to provide vocals would be a bonus, but not essential. Genre, based on what I've been writing recently, can best be described as hard rock with elements of blues, punk, reggae, ska, dub, country, folk and gypsy punk. Would initially like to do 3-4 gigs a month, more if possible, but this band is mainly for fun above all else.
