Drummer and bassist - both long in the tooth but can still count to seven are looking to meet and jam with keys and guitar with view to see if anything happens. Obvious musical areas would be IB and similar but bring whatever grabs you.....or has grabbbed you in the past !

(Anyone seeking immediate megastardom will be taken outside until the reality-friendly and calming fresh air of Queensbury takes effect)

We like Rush too btw. And Kino, Frost , vast swathes of Genesis and Camel all mixed up in a prog-cocktail.. Get in touch !

Hi

I did PM this but had no reply.

Can you flesh it out a bit more? Originals/covers? vocals?

We're both currently serving time in a deeply cheesey rock covers band, but every time we go to see a gig we end up saying "we really must get around to playing something more proggy".... and then completely failing to do something about it.

Good ol' Brodie (he's the bass half, which makes me... um... what was it again?) has finally taken the initiative.
Huzzah!

To be honest, we'd be up for covers or originals. Start with stuff we all know and if inspiration hits, so be it.

The bottom line is, we just need to Prog, dammit.

Vocals? Well, I expect there'll be some...
We both sing, to varying degrees of tunefulness. Is that what you meant?
