My name is John, and I am trying to start up a pop-punk/punk style band. I am 26, and currently live in Moore. I used to play music and form bands a lot when I was younger, but kind of gave up on that some years back. Lately, I realized I need to start making music again as a way to stay sane and get some of my old-self back, so I am hoping to find a couple of bandmates to jam with.
If it turns into something that can support us, that's awesome, but I'm not necessarily needing to "make it". I would be content just making music we like and playing/recording as we can. For me, this is more of a way to express myself and do something I've always dreamed of while still holding down my job (at least, for now). Because of this and also the kind of person I am, I would prefer to find a couple of people who are not only bandmates, but maybe could become good friends with me in time. I feel the music is more pure if we are friends anyway.
I am looking to do vocals and rhythm guitar myself, though I would be willing to share that with someone else if it works well musically. I'd prefer at least another guitarist, a bassist, and a drummer. A keyboardist is also something I think could be pretty cool, but not necessary.
Some bands/influences I've had in my head a lot lately include The Story So Far, Forever Came Calling, Motion City Soundtrack, NOFX, and the new Blink Album ("California"),
If you're interested, hit me up and maybe we can make something work! =)
