ABOUT

As do many of my musician friends, I love to play and look for local opportunities to drum. I play in American Legion Marching, Concert and Jazz bands and as much as I can just for fun and relationships with other players. I am retired from other work and currently am seeking music anywhere USA. I would like to audition as a drummer for a band, orchestra, resort park or other gig. I am very interested in professional work.
