Experienced and serious drummer in mid-20's looking for serious band.
I have ten years gigging experience and moved to area because my hometown doesn't have enough venues to play.
I play a DW 5 PC, and can sing background harmonies. I play in the style of Mitch Mitchell (Hendrix) and Bill Ward (Sabbath)...the ability to play hard and flashy, but also have a good ear and know when to pull back, when the song requires it.
I like to play different flavors of rock music, but it has to have lots of energy and lots of contrast. Lots of light and dark, lots of wierd, lots of heavy, lots of pretty. Pop elements are ok, but must also have room to push the volume/noise/style/envelope.
Influences include: Jawbox, Sunny Day Real Estate, Refused, Riddle of Steel, Medications, Drive Like Jehu, QUOTSA, Engine Down, Animal Collective. Other (pop) influences include Placebo, old Smashing Pumpkins.
I am driven and professional, yet am easy to work with.
Willing to practice several days a week. I want to get in a band and make it happen.
I would prefer to join an existing band and not start from scratch.
Please give me an address where I can find your audio clips.

Drummers: Mitch Mitchel (Hendrix), Bill Ward (Sabbath), Travis Barker(Blink), David Sandstrom (Refused), Rob Smith (Riddle of Steel), Dave Grohl (duh), Will Goldsmith (Sunny Day Real Estate)
