Against my fabled predictions, I actually have joined a new start up prog band!!!
I got a call from a keyboardist who saw my CL ad, and contacted me about a new band he was helping to start up. They had a drummer who wanted to be in a Dream Theater tribute, a fantastic guitarist, and they needed a bass player.
Well, “HELLO SAILOR!!!!”
So we got together at the drummer’s house and worked out a songfest we are going to practice on January 27, and we are auditioning singers starting in mid-February (there are 3 or 4 we are considering at this point).
From what I’ve heard on their Youtube channels, they are the best musicians I have ever played with.
I am ecstatic! So I’ve got to learn these songs (3 are for auditioning the vocalist, and the other 3 are for helping us get acquainted in a band/rehearsal context.)
We don’t have a name yet, but I am really stoked to get the whole thing going and can’t wait for our first rehearsal – I finally get to move some gear out of the house!!!
“Mamma I’m so happy, I’m gonna join the band!”
More to follow soon!
