X-Lizzy Borden guitarist Gene Allen will perform a live tribute set of LB songs from the past, management is in place to book shows and have a couple of rad singers in the mix (but always open to check out more vocal talent if you have friends who can pull this off)

we'll have to play some free shows at first for promo's, the band will never do pay to play shows, short term goal is build up the vibe so the band get's paid and all players make $$ once we draw the crowd numbers and hit good booze sale with these clubs, tall order these days as clubs don't pay bands as most you well know, I'll have the manager work it out with club owners and book shows all over USA, Canada, Europe, Japan when we're ready to cross that bridge (manager ready to book shows 30 days after band is complete). most tours will be weekend warrior status as most musicians have day jobs, in the future might it be up to 10 day stints if going out of the US or east coast (it's gonna take time to build that vibe).

all pro players welcome to audition, send decent video clip and 1 audio clip or web link to your profile that contains video/audio, pictures etc. live auditions/rehearsals will be on going over the next few months, I'll go over the basic biz details with those who are chosen. My biz is with BMI and BMG handles all my publishing. the real goal is to write/record new original material for release and build that project. The Lizzy thing gives us a project that can start playing shows once the players are in place because I understand players gotta get paid, the original band thing can takes years before you see a return on your investment.

going through songs now, i will send 3 songs to learn when I reply... and no you don't have to wear makeup or silly 80's spandex, your image is whatever you want it to be as long as it's a cool look that fits the vibe.

Look forward to check'n out some rad players out there, my discogs link below

(I am touring with X-Suicidal Tendencies players these days and on our last trip to japan the drummer didn't have his passport ready, we called all the players in on our network but nobody could go, drummer from TSOL filled in for the gigs, get in my click and I'll let you know of other paying gigs, we don't contact players with ads on craig's list for last minute fill-ins)
