Experienced drummer with 60+ years playing drums. Played from bars to live venues/concerts, and toured with bands from Hawaii all over the West coast. My main focuses are in Jazz-Fusion, Funk, R&B, Blues, Reggae, Latin-Jazz. But I am able to play all styles of music (i.e. country,classic rock).
Originally from Hawaii, been in the states (Beaverton) for a few years now. Looking to put together a jam session with well-rounded musicians to play some covers and have fun or jam at an open mic event in Beaverton At The Garages. I'm usually there every Thursdays.
