ABOUT

On here to see what or who I may come across, network, make contacts, etc. As for my background.. Started playing in the school music program when I was 10. I basically did everything in the curiculum that let me grab a pair of sticks. Played in various drum corps from 15-21. I've played for several hard rock & metal bands doing covers or originals since my teens. I've always had a liking for technical extreme metal drumming in all it's different sub-genre variations.

I'm out to take my playing and whatever band I'm in as far as I can. If it goes far enough that I can quit my day job & still make ends meet then, great! If not, I'll still have fun doing what I love to do..couldn't imagine not playing in a metal band. I'm always up for meeting other musicians or a band where every member feels the same way. Contacting me...jasontg77@ or (607)587-9474.
