Hard rock band forming (Newington/Uncasville)

Hey everyone,

I am a 39 year old guitarist with a job and family looking for some musicians to put together a (modernish) hard rock band. I have been playing live since I was about 16 years old, but found my recent band fizzled out during the pandemic. I come from playing various styles of metal, but decided to try my hand at writing songs in more of a hard rock style. The result of my efforts was a collection of 9 songs, and counting. My main influences have been bands such as Shinedown, Mammoth WVH, Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters, etc. I wouldn't say the music sounds like these bands specifically, but they certainly inspired me.

Initially, I wanted to keep the music as a studio project, but have decided I would love to try finding like-minded musicians who would be interested in jamming and eventually playing live. I have found a guitarist, bass player, and singer, so am currently looking for a drummer to fill out the lineup.

I am located in Newington, the bassist is in Vernon, and the other guitarist is in Uncasville. Unfortunately, my current situation does not allow me to host in-person rehearsals, but the other guitarist has a great kit and a spot to play at his house. I understand this could be far for some, but it is an option. Right now, we have been getting together about every other Sunday. Sometimes I do have availability during the week, depending on work. Scheduling may require some creativity due to life obligations of the other guys, but I am sure it can be worked out. With that being said, we are all able to work independently on things, while communicating via text/email. Being able to work remotely is important to us, along with solid communication.

I understand this situation may not be appealing to everyone, but figured I would give it a shot. If you are interested, please feel free to reach out to:

Tell me about yourself, what music you enjoy, what equipment/experience you have, what type of availability you have, etc. I can certainly send you a more of what we are working on, but have included two audio examples of songs we have, and a YouTube video. Age is not super important to me, as long as we get along as people. Please, no drug addicts or alcoholics. I will not respond if your message simply contains a phone number or email address.
