Casual Jam / Form a Band (Rock, Reggae, Funk, Blues, Acid Jazz...)

Postby gd3000 » Sat, 21 Nov 2015 11:53 am

Long shot finding folks like me who haven't figured out what to do with the imminent holiday breaks, but if you're one of 'em and would like to schedule a jam, feel free to message me here.

I play guitar by the way, and currently have Tame Impala's "Elephant" and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's "Spread Your Love" on repeat - just wanted to throw that in there ;)

Hey man.
I'm Paul 25 yo, expat here.

I play guitar (mostly accoustic but used to play electric...level "just ok enough") and sing (It's not Freddy Mercury but the passion is in here).
I love a LOT of kind of music: I used to be the lead singer in a pretty good rock band doing covers of Red hot, Rage against the Machine, Nirvana, Beatles, Jet, Blur and playing guitar for some Arctic Monkeys, the Hives, The White Stripes....

I also loved to "perform" some solo guitar/voice or guitar/keyboard/voice with an Italian friend while in China, doing like:

Bob Marley
The Cure
The rolling Stones
Tracy CHapman
Lynyrd Skynyrd
Ben Harper
Iggy Pop
Oasis
Eagle Eye Cherry
Tame Impala-Feels like we only go backwards

Basically, I can sing several songs, playing in the same time needs practice and it would not be spectacular but well...

Did you start something already with anyone? Needing another guitar or singer?
Let me know.

Hey Guys,

Just moved to Singapore from England and Im 24.
Was a fairly serious musician back there and would love a jam here sometime!
I play the guitar (mainly) and/or bass and can do a killer Frusciante Falsetto on backing vocals haha.
My compositions are mainly rock and funk rock, but i love playing stuff from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Led Zeppelin to Rage Against the Machine to John Mayer to Frank Zappa to even Snarky Puppy.

Hey amigo, thanks for your reply. Yep, we are trying to origanise another jam session. Schedule's not firm at the moment though, but will definitely keep you posted. What instrument/s do you play, by the way?

We are mostly likely the only Blues Brothers tribute band in Singapore. This 12 piece band is missing one of the most important pieces, Elwood Blues. If you love Blues Brothers and want to be Elwood. Please contact me. halhead@mac.com

Hi guys, Pop-Reggae to Afro-Reggae Band is looking for a lead guitarist to join.
We're all semi-pros to pros. Also got a brass section. If you're a lead guitarist, can do own homework and more important can commit to at least 1 time rehearsal a week, please fill free to react and we'll jam.
Big up!
