    Hello all,
    Looks like there's cool things afoot over here. I've spent some time over at some other forums (HC, HFC), but am new here. I'm 32, from East Hampton, CT. My regular job was as a live sound engineer until my company was bought out. Now I'm an Account Executive. Whatever. My real love is playing guitar and futzing around with gear. I play in a local band here called The Analog Reception. We play orginal rock that I can't really describe. If you're so inclined, you can check it out here:
    www.myspace.com/analogreception
    I went off and fancied myself a drummer for awhile, so now I'm rebuilding my guitar collection. I currently mostly play a 1986 Fender AVRI '57 Strat, a 95 Hamer USA Special FM custom order, and an MIJ Fender Jazzmaster with a bunch of mods through a Valvetech Hayseed 30 head and Laney 2x12, with way too many effects.
    Cheers!

    JA

    Hi Tim, we've never met but share several friends in common. Your reputation as an excellent player in this region preceeds you!

    We know so many people in common, I'm surprised we haven't already jammed together at one point. LOL!

    I studied with Al Ferrante, Paul Gabriel, Tom Pitel, Dan Romo

    I used to do the open mic at The Avenue Cafe with Tim Murphy, Mark Rudzinski, Rev or Frank Sambiase and bunch of other guys and I sit in with a bunch of folks in the area from time to time. Midnight Rodeo, Crystall Pyramid, Rhythm Authority, Mia & The Riff, The Hey Baby Band, Mamma Jamma, and of course my own band, The Rockaholics.

    Here's a "hollar!"

    Thanks for all the kind welcomes and I'll definitely try and make it out to the jam in August. Sounds like a blast!
