ABOUT

I have been studying drumset for five years and have gigged regularly for more than two. R&B, funk, jazz, swing, blues, and Latin are my primary styles. I love entertaining and playing music and can mix in well with any crowd. I am completely drug and alcohol free. My belief is that one has the power to do anything once the mindset is in place.

Currently I am looking to join a band who would like to play authentic classic rhythm and blues and soul music, jazz and/or blues. Also looking to join a band with repertoire that included standards. Please give me a call at 410-370-8381.

************************UPDATE*********************************** Looking to form a great, tight rhythm/blues soul band. Music will include that of James Brown, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Wilson Pickett, as well as that of various other '60s & '70s rhythm & blues/soul artists. I need at least one of each of the following: keyboards, guitar, bass guitar, trumpet, tenor/alto sax, trombone. You must have at least one year of gigging experience and specialize in your chosen instrument. At rehearsals, music will be learned mainly by fake book charts. This is a great opportunity to play some really fun-sounding music. Call Josh at 410-370-8381 at anytime; if you get voicemail, please leave me a message and I'll return your call ASAP. You can also email me at jvyskocil@ or find me on Facebook.
