ABOUT

Basically I'm a Jazz fusion and smooth jazz drummer, and I have played blues and R&B.In my past and present experiences. I have played classic rock, and oldies with people like: Al Wilson,The Olympics,Rosie(for you young people,she is known for the song "Angel baby" back in the day). I have played gospel, and a little country western too. Whatever I'm playing, I do it in a professional manner. I have recently put together a jazz /R&B band called "Hi Lyfe", and I am also interested in meeting some Jazz / Jazz Fusion musicians in the Adelanto / High Desert area. My cell is: 909-531-8238. Please leave a message on my cell if I don't answer, I usually turn my phone off if I'm at a rehearsal or playing a gig.
