I'm a freelance, part-time session drummer who enjoys filling in and pinch-hitting at rehearsals, live performances, and recording sessions.
What can you expect of me as your session drummer?
1) Never missing a rehearsal, recording or live performance;
2) always "first one in, last one out" at every gig;
3) being fully prepared to rehearse, play or record, and;
4) demonstrating a positive and teamwork-oriented attitude.
In other words, being dependable and reliable are as important to me as being skilled behind the drum set. Professionalism and sharp drumming skills go hand in hand.
I also practice being generous with my participation. A generous musician is a musician who gives her all to the band or ensemble she is assisting. Egos can remain in the waiting room until the rehearsal or performance is over.
Additional videos, displaying a variety of genres that I enjoy playing, can be found here: www.youtube.com/c/devikah
My availability, at the moment, is limited to part-time and temporary opportunities because of my participation in the Music Business and Technology Program at the College of Southern Nevada. Therefore, full-time band membership is not on my radar.
Thank you for your time.
