SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist - Tenor, Vocalist - Soprano, Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar, Keyboard, Piano, Vocalist - Alto.
Freelancing Drummer - I invite, welcome and consider all opportunities for collaboration with other seasoned musicians interested in creating, performing and/or inspiring live music in the genre of Smooth or Contemporary Jazz (instrumental or not),
I'm also currently seeking talented musicians to mount a killer band composed of bass, guitar, piano, sax & vocalist. This, in an attempt to do local gigging with the main objective being that for corporate events. I would also consider the possibility of integrating into a band with this same criteria and goals and who's infrastructure is already in place in need of a drummer.
I'm easy to get along with, no ego trips or drama, reliable, quick learner and with a great work ethic and sense of humor. - It is all about balancing WORK and FUN of our craft in producing an appealing sound and image thus creating a product or a 'brand' that audiences will recognized, appreciate, identify with and will ultimately and adequately compensate.
I'm also available for recording studio sessions work.

Influences are just too many to list here.....however with regard to my drumming style; The learning process is eternal. With so many drummers out there today, (young and and not so young), it is sometimes difficult and risky to define thus labeling yourself inadvertently to a certain style exclusively. Very often I find myself relying on the foundation of my humble beginning by listening to the Master of Syncopation Mr. David Garibaldi of T.O.P., for inspiration and who launched me into the world of Funk. I also admire Mr. Dave Weckl who is considered by many to be the best drummer on the planet and for his introduction to Fusion in my drumming career. One other great drummer's style I'd like to mention here and who I truly admire is the intricate and super innovative Antonio Sanchez for his style and perfect mastery domination of rhythms over the kit ~ **
This is in no way implying that my drumming is like any of the aforementioned TITAN Percussionists but rather, that I always stride for one day being able to play & sound like any of them instead.
