ABOUT

Hey All, I am a retired Marine I had played the drums since 1972 a total of 12 years playing time before I had to give it up due to deployments and other travel with the Marine Corps. I love playing music and am looking for a commited band or interested musicians willing to work hard at forming a band. I have been working hard on my chops since retiring and am ready to get something going. If any of you are in the Slidell or Nothshore area and want to just do a jam session, I'm all about it. I have a 6-4 day job, so am only available at night during the week, weekends are open as needed. I'm looking for musicians with similar musical interests 60's- 80's Rock, Southern or Country rock. If you have a working band who's drummer can't make a practice once in a while, I'd be glad to sit in.

I take pride in owning good equipment, my drum kit and cymbals are professional level, and they sound great!
