Greeting CL community!

I'm looking for one or more individuals to play some acoustic music. In the past, I have had a number of experiences playing out at small bar gigs and some open mics. I would be interested in doing that kind of thing again if the situation is right. I think this would be more fun if I could find a partner (or a few) to form an acoustic duo or small acoustic band.

I like to play a lot of different songs. Most of my repertoire is covers, but I do have a handful of originals, if you're into that sort of thing. I'm open to playing any kind of songs, but I would like to focus on playing songs that we both know (i.e. covers). Some specific artists I enjoy include:
-Tom Petty
-John Mayer
-Grateful Dead
-Goo goo dolls
-Dave Matthews Band
-Simon and Garfunkel
-Everly Brothers
-Hall and Oates
-Jason Mraz
-Green Day
-Red Hot Chili Peppers
-Third Eye Blind
-Assorted other Pop; Rock; Blues; Alternative; Singer-songwriter-styles
(I tried to mention some of my top choices from various genres and decades to illustrate my range of favorites.)

I am not a big country fan, but if that is your thing and you want to try a few twangy tunes, I'm open to it.

I have a stable job and I do not have dreams of making it big in the music industry. I just want to find a few others who would enjoy getting together after work every week or so to play some music.

I primarily play guitar and sing. I can also play a little harmonica and some very basic keys. I'm a fairly good guitarist (for an amateur), but an unapologetic novice at harmonica and piano. I only mention them as options to add a different flavor other than guitar for some songs.

I'm hoping I can find someone who has a similar skill level. I'm not sure if this will be helpful to give a sense of the types of musical skills I'm seeking, but these are the types of abilities I would ideally hope a jam partner might have:
-Be able to play all standard chords (cowboy chords and barre chords)
-Be able to solo in major and minor scales (any other modes are a bonus)
-Understand Nashville numbering for quick communication
-Sing lead while playing instrument
-Sing harmonies while playing instrument

If you can do some or all of these and the description I've provided aligns with your own interests, please let me know. I look forward to meeting you and playing some tunes!

Let there be songs to fill the air...
