Looking for another musician to start a local duo (Murrieta)

Hi, I’m Shawn McBride, and I am looking for another musician to form a duo with for the purpose of live gigging in the Murrieta, Temecula and surrounding areas. I am open to a variety of styles but I’d like to work in genres that are “wine country and old town” friendly. I previously played for a year in one of Temecula’s busiest top 40 groups as a bassist every weekend, but in this project I would be playing more guitar than bass, though I would always be able to provide bass parts in a duo scenario.

A little about me, I am 37 years old, I live out in Murrieta, CA with my wife and 3 kids, and I recently became a barber last year while taking some time to add some new skills to my plate. I am originally from the Riverside area and I’ve played in over 50 groups over the years. I’ve played a variety of genres over the past 20 years, from funk and gospel to blues, rock and reggae, and even for a while I was doing smooth jazz and traditional/latin jazz gigs on the upright bass. I took the last few years to get into barbering as a secondary means of income, but my passion is truly music. I play over 30 instruments, I started as a trombonist and over the years I worked in a lot of music stores and picked up instrument families in my spare time.

I’m a kick back guy but I’m very serious about my craft- I learn songs quickly, I’m professional on stage and off, and I LOVE entertaining live crowds. My goal is to play close to every weekend, and keep it all within a manageable drive.

So… if you are a fellow guitarist, bassist, percussionist, brass/woodwind soloist or vocalist, and you’d like to get working on a gigging set right away- hit me up!
