Piano Player Experienced in Mercerville
Experienced piano player who likes to play mostly jazz - seeking situation. I love all types of music - especially standards, coming up with jazzy arrangements for pop tunes and smooth jazz. I have played out many times, can read charts, improvise, play left-hand bass, accompany other soloists and vocalists. Check out my playing on You Tube under "Chazz Quartet" (link below). I have a large carpeted rehearsal space in Mercer County. I am not comfortable playing out without rehearsals - and lots of them. I'm taking a laid-back approach to my music right now, but I'd love to find a situation that's right for me (and you). Please feel free to e-mail me at: gdip67@aol.com View Website

Drummers! We are looking for someone who loves the great songs from the days when MTV actually played music. We are a start-up band with lead guitar, bass & singer/rhythm guitar players. We are looking for someone with enthusiasm for the genre who can play the songs from bands like: INXS, Crowded House, Elvis Costello, Cars, Police, REM, Ramones, & some of the cool One-Hit Wonder bands that got heavy airplay in the early 80's. Vocals are a plus but not a deal breaker. WE are easy-going guys who want to rehearse once a week and play out a few times a year and make virtually no money.
