This is The Banned.  I used to play keyboards and sing with them for almost a year and a half.  We only did 60's songs and they didn't ever want to play out but we made this CD in the recording studio where we rehearsed, which was in the backyard of the bass player's house.  (I'm the one in the sunglasses).  

It's been over a year since I quit The Banned.  Lately, I've been writing songs & am quite pleased with them.  Since I really don't play any instruments ( only very little keyboard ), I need a band that can help me get these songs out.  I am currently obsessed with The Monkees, particularly Mike Nesmith's work and am dying to do a cover of "Love Is Only Sleeping" from The Monkees record, "Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd.".  The song was actually written by Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, but Mike delivers it with such expertise and the lyrics hit so close to home with me, I am certain I can make people cry with my rendition of it.  I'm not too optimistic about finding a band that wants to do a Monkees cover in Tucson, but maybe at least a band that wants to rock out & help me rock out my own songs.
