NorbyG on da Mic!

I’m a Vocalist/Frontman, with several years experience. I also play rhythm guitar, song writing and do backing vocals. I’ve been exercising my vocal chords since childhood. I have a powerful (natural and falsetto) distinctive vocal sound, dancing ability and stage presence. It’s been said; “You don't need a microphone with a voice as powerful as that!” I'm confident, reliable, hardworking, ambitious and have a good sense of humour. I’m experienced singing soul, motown, funk, disco, reggae, soca, classic & heavy rock, rhythm and blues, rock‘n’roll, pop and a bit of jazz. At age 15, I started learning to play the guitar and performed as a Vocalist/Frontman in my first (Soul/Pop) band. I’ve performed in a range of venues like Pubs, Social Clubs, Hotels, Nightclubs, Universities, Parties, Balls, Weddings, Corporate Functions, Military Bases, Festivals and Charity Events. Not only that; but I’ve recorded in professional studios, done sessions and supported Coolio. I'm presently singing in a Blues Brothers tribute/rhythm'n'blues band - for past 12 years. I've been trying to join a (new) Funk/Soul or Ska/Rocksteady/Reggae band for some time now, or form one; but from experience...funk/soul and reggae musicians are very hard to find. I know there's an audience for this form of music (especially ska/rocksteady/reggae) but hardly any bands or musicians are playing this riddim. So what's going on you bands and musos out there; is funk and reggae music so hard to play!? So bands/musos out there; if you’re after a confident Vocalist/Frontman, don't hesitate to contact me. I’ve performed in Pubs, Social Clubs, Hotels, Nightclubs, Universities, Parties, Weddings, Corporate Functions, Military Bases, Festivals, a vessel, Charity Events and supported Coolio. I've been singing in a 9-piece Blues Brothers tribute band for past 12 years. I'm now fed up of doing the same old excitement has gone out of it. I need to broaden my horizon; so I'm looking for a funk/soul or authentic ska/rocksteady/reggae band; or any dance type band. Have transport and will travel (within means) for the right opportunity/band. Or, I'll be interested in forming band to do any of above genres. I’ve also appeared in several TV shows, Films, Videos & done Photographic Modelling.
