ABOUT

Hello! I make my living as a drummer, so please send only serious inquiries regarding profitable gigs.

Try me out and you'll see that I am the EPITOME of a PLAYING IN THE POCKET drummer. I give every song EXACTLY what it needs - no more, no less. I am sensitively INTUNE with all the members of the band, especially the bass player - as we are the backbone.

You'll see that I play with CONVICTION and AUTHORITY. You can SAFELY rely on me to maintain a STEADY tempo and make it sound TASTY at the same time. I can range from being the softest touch to the hardest hitter, depening on what's needed.

You can hear some SAMPLES at ://./playlist?list=PL7EB7645D7FF18891

My IDEAL situation would include any combination of ORIGINALS and/or COVERS:
Adult-Contemporary, Alternative-Country (RED-DIRT, OUTLAW, COUNTRY-FRIED ROCK), BLUES-ROCK, Blues, Singer/Songwriter, Americana, Roots, JAZZ-FUNK, Funk, Indie, Classic Rock, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's to present (NO Metal).

I am EXPERT at most covers, and I'm also interested in putting my TALENT and creativity into your original project. Age 40-ish, playing since age 10, Vintage 70's Ludwig 4-piece, Zildjian cymbals. Willing to relocate or TOUR for the right group. Don't drink, DRUG-FREE, dependable, smart and happy!

John Bonham (Led Zeppelin) was my hero as a kid. Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) is currently my favorite drummer. But, I liken my playing style to Steve Gorman (Black Crowes).

PLEASE CONTACT ME if you have BOOKED GIGS or need a pro drum sound for RECORDING.

Peace,
Bill
