Contact Details

Bryan Dempsey

Age: 60
Hello there,

I am a singer/rhythm guitar player who would like to join or help form a jazz/pop/R&B band. I'm 60 and studied jazz vocals/theory at St. F. X. univeristy for 2 years in the mid '80's. I've been playing rhythm guitar (with some knowledge of jazz chord voicings) since my teenage years and played bass in a band when I was 15. I've done some busking in Victoria, and played once at the Norway House. My voice is somewhere between baritone and tenor, with about a 1 1/2 octaves range. The tunes I play now are by artists like Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, Stevie Wonder, Kenny Loggins, and Frank Zappa. I have lead sheets, MP3, and MIDI versions for most of the tunes I play. Here's part of my song list:

All in Love is Fair (Stevie Wonder) A Major
Bad Sneakers (Steely Dan) C Major
Deacon Blues (Steely Dan) B Major
Dr. Wu (Steely Dan) B Major
Evil Ways (Santana) F Minor
Golden Lady (Stevie Wonder) C Major
I Gotta Try (Michael McDonald/Kenny Loggins) D Major
Minute By Minute (Michael McDonald/Lester Abrams) D Major
Pretzel Logic (Steely Dan) C# Major
Rikki Don't Lose That Number (Steely Dan) A Minor
Uncle Remus (Frank Zappa) E Minor
What A Fool Believes (Michael McDonald/Kenny Loggins) G# Minor
