favorite this post Violinist looking for a band / gigs / jams! hide this posting unhide

Just as the title says, I'm looking to CONNECT!!! I would like to ideally find a group of 4 or 5 serious musicians looking to pay their bills via writing music and playing shows. My biggest influences/what I would like to strive for in a perfect musical world, are sounds/artists like: Radiohead, Punch Brothers, Bill Evans, Ben Folds-esque songwriting. I've met a handful of musicians since coming to LR, but I'd like to meet some more folks, and I would REALLY like to meet some people who could put us to work! promoters, venue owners, managers, etc....

A little about me: I'm a 24 year old full-time violinist of many interests. I primarily play 5 string violin, but I also have solid chops on keys. grew up playing classical and jazz, now I live here and play concerts with the ASO and other local orchestras. I went to undergrad at University of Michigan's music school, where I was part of the classical and jazz departments. i had to graduate early in order to go on world tour with a well known string pop band called Barrage, and have versatility in styles like rock, country, indie, celtic, and jazz. I'm going to the Berklee College of Music in Valencia starting in the fall for a one year masters program.

I'll stop here cause you can find my whole life story on my website, as well as music, videos, photos, and just a lot of links. I also teach jazz and classical violin, and I came out with a debut solo album at the end of November, so please do check it out!:

IN SHORT, I'd like to get to know more people in the area! If you are someone in the area who:
-plays in a partially completed band (or a solo artist who has some experience and wants to collaborate),
-books shows,
-loves music,
-or knows anyone who DOES love music, PLEASE hit me up!!!!!

I would love to sit down and have a coffee, or free jam on some ambient looped chords, or play down standards, or sightread some Beethoven quartets. Look me up!!!
thanks in advance LR :)
