Backrounder

Rock-influenced bassist looking for cover band in Toronto Canada. Ideal scenario would be once/week practice and once/month live gigs.

If it helps the band sound, I split my bass signal and route to two amps, each with its own settings/tone.

Influences

Beatles, Yes, AC/DC, Billy Idol, Tom Petty, Led Zep, Who, Deep Purple, Queen, Doors, ZZ Top, Foo Fighters and numerous other bands that will come to mind eventually.
