Band to Join.


I've been playing for about 25 years in multiple situations: marching bands, theater pits, alt rock original, power trios, percussion, singer songwriter, modern country and top 40. Original and cover bands.

I'm an open-minded, creative, musical drummer with an ear for what the band is doing. Fast learner, can write and read charts. I also play a percussion rig (pictured with the cajon). If you're a solo or duo looking to add a percussion element, this could be an option for you. I often take this work with little to no rehearsal as I have 2 full-time gigs.

Currently playing with the Dunn, Wolfe, and Novak trio and the db Kinney acoustic duo. I also own and operate Groove Recording an online professional drum recording and mixing service --

Available for fill-in or recording work (on-site or remote). I can also mix your song. Tired of using programmed drums for your song? Need some percussion to glue things together? Adding live drums to your track is easier than you think. I mixed and played drums on the track "I'm Not Dead Yet" and mixed the track "Thank You For Loving Me".
