ABOUT

Versatile, experienced, passionate drummer looking for a band that creates excitement through performance. Wants to be set apart from just another cover band...Have played all styles of rock and jazz, and played drums in a locally successful Jamaican steel drum band. Can play rhythm guitar and sing harmony. Technically proficient, but will play what's appropriate to enhance the overall feel of a tune. Not a pounder, but can create a solid rhythm. I love to contribute to the structure and creative interpretation of a song; I take music seriously but not myself. Life is an amusement park...let's ride!

Influences

Yardbirds, Moody Blues, Buckinghams, Chicago, Cream, Beatles, Dave Clark Five, Hollies, Zombies, Turtles (and not ashamed of it!), Yes, Badfinger, Kansas, Rush, Queen, Spinal Tap. Not a fan of badass rock, southern rock, blues or folk. YES is everything I love about music: creative musical ideas, great harmonies, changing musical textures, moving bass lines, syncopation, complex layers created by each instrument playing something different, superb proficiency.

EQUIPMENT

Mapex 8 piece M-birch acoustic set (sounds great!), Sabian Ride, Zildjian crashes and hi-hats.
