Non stop offers to play in bands again

Hi Everyone.

It has been over three years since I’ve played in a band. My keyboards skills are shall I say almost non existent, but the other day when I got a chance to tickle the ivories, I could feel that with a bit more practice, I could make playing on stage a reality. Some of you might have seen my YouTube upload of me performing a raw rendition of “Misty”. You can check it out here:

I knew I would do a come back someday, because opportunities were offered left right and center. Only thing is, I wasn’t ready, but now I can’t just stand there and turn it all down. I have to start saying yes to one of them, right?

I’m in the process of working my butt off to buy a keyboard. Preferably one that has a pitch bend as I’m use to being more of a synthesiser player. If any of you can point me in the direction of a nice modern syntesiser, that’d be great. In the meantime I would have to borrow a keyboard from my friend who I sold one of my keyboards to before. It would probably take about 3 months before I can buy another keyboard

Wish me luck everyone. I’m exited for my renewed energy and journey.

Until next time

The Accented Guy

Friend: "So when you get to Rice Street, you need to turn left". Quinton: "Ok, give me a second to memorize that. Yes, I can see mice all over that street eating at the rice, hence the street name. The mice are all leaning to the left and at the same time they have tattoos on their foreheads that reads "L" for loser. Oh, and they're sad, because they are all losers" Quinton is a South African native who literally is a "Jack of all Trades". Born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1977 during Apartheid. His ADHD as a child has helped him to early on in his life figure out how to think and do things the unconventional way without him knowing it was actually a very unusual way. He had a fairly good childhood upbringing according to himself. He couldn't understand why he wasn't suppose to interact with "white" people during that time, but that didn't deter him from asking questions and being inquisitive. He had built bikes so he could do stunts, learned how to juggle, taught himself to be a gymnast, studied the tennis pro's by meticulously copying every single move they made, played amateur soccer and held the highest record among his friends for tapping a football over a thousand times in one take, co founded an a Capella group called Young Ambition where he was the lead singer, was a stand up comedian for 6 months, annoyed his teachers at school, was the life of the party everywhere he went, toured the U.S, got married to an American, had two daughters, got divorced after 11 years and currently an online entrepreneur. Oh, he also created online YouTube music, calls himself "The Accented Guy" and taught himself to play the keyboards, became a skilled jazz musician, because his voice started giving in. He's played with well known bands all over town and in other states. He experimented using Jazz to incorporate it into heavy metal, rock, European progressive classical music etc. and also studied languages whereby his goal is to speak Spanish fluently by the end of 2017
