Singer/Guitar - Get me out of this rut please!

LOOKING FOR FOCUS! I have a passion for music, and it is time to get back to it. The time in my life is now.
I am a former professional musician looking to get back to it after a long break working on building my career and raising a family.
I have experience playing Trumpet, running sound and playing guitar as well as other instruments. I would love to find a local band seeking a singer to let me give that a try. I have been focusing on guitar, and some singing around the house, but lack a real focus so I am all over the place.
Maybe, I could sing backup vocals / harmonies, and a few lead vocals sometime? I have many songs I can play guitar on, but only a few in their entirety, because It is just me at home, I would love to build up my skills and change that.
I have professional gear, and am not into drugs or egos. I am a social drinker.
Some influences that I like, and may be able to cover, include, but not limited to, INXS, Simple Minds, Billy Idol, Goo Goo Dolls, Styx, Pearl Jam, Kings of Leon, Fuel, Hootie and the Blowfish, The Little River Band, Tonic, Collective Soul, Jimmy Eat World........................70’s, 80’s, 90’s....
I don't want to do this for the money. If I make gas money on a few gigs, that would be awesome, but I want to do this for the love of music more than anything.
Maybe we get together and come up with a few songs we can do very well, and never leave the basement? Or maybe we get together and put something awesome together that allows us to play a decent sized show after a few months of hard work and practice? We wont know until we try.
I am willing to put in the effort, and I am very dependable. I am willing to travel for practice and shows as needed.
If you read this far, sorry for the long post, and thank you. I just want to set expectations the best I can because I don't want to waste anyone's valuable time.
Interested? Please let me know what you are thinking.
