Guitarist looking for Bassist, Drums to form Cover Band (Upper Beaches)

Hi, I am looking to make some musical acquaintances in forming either i) ideally a 3 piece (cover) band (guitar/bass/drums/vocal) or ii) a 2 piece (cover band) with a drum machine (less scheduling conflicts, for simpler tunes). I would like to work towards a gig before year end - that would be a BONUS! Whether a charity, a bar, a friend's backyard, someone's driveway. I have played in bands and played gigs before. See songs below.

Ideally I want to focus on guitar again, but can trade off on bass, can sing too, as well as some keyboards/bass pedals. If this matches what you are looking for then let's discuss. Rock on! PS...non-smoker, finance guy in my youthful mid 40s. Happy to practice at Cherry Beach Sound, Rehearsal Factory or such. Text show contact info .

My musical/performance preferences include: The Police, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Rush, The Cult, Lenny Kravitz, Tom Petty, ZZ Top, KISS, Big Sugar, 54-40, The Who, Killers, April Wine, Aerosmith, U2, The Hip, Platinum Blonde, Oasis, White Stripes/Raconteurs, The Trews, Big Sugar, T-Rex, Black Sabbath, Simple Minds, Bowie, Black Crowes, the odd Gn'R/Pearl Jam/Elton John/80s New Wave/catchy Top 40 tune...I think you can understand the picture.
