    Default Connecticut guys, know any bass players into Van Halen?

    Hey guys, I know this is a long shot, but what the hell...

    Some of you may know I'm in a local CT Van Halen cover band...

    recently I've been having some issues with my bass player after he joined another band 8 months back Anyway, for various reasons he quit yesterday, said he'd stay on until we find a new guy but...

    So I was wondering if any of you guys knew anyone in Connecticut around the New Haven/Fairfield counties...or even around Hartford...that loves VH, can play bass, and can do the necessary backup vocals. If so, drop me a message...we play some of the better rooms/clubs in the area.

    Looking to keep this project alive...

    Thanks in advance!

    CVH or all eras?

    Just asking, because the less CVH you play, the less skilled a bass player you need and can concentrate more on the their singing skills, the bass lines got progressively easier.

    In my humble opinion of course.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    What part of the state does your band play in?
