My email is newms4. I'm looking to play drums, percussion, and sing with other musicians located within 30 minutes of West Chester/Exton area. I can host lower volume acoustic type jams but, can't really rock out cuz I live in a townhouse between two other houses. I would love to form a Ryan Adams cover band. I would love to play drums in any of the following: Classic Rock/Pop cover band, Hard Rock/Metal cover band. I want to sing (if possible) I'd like to play percussion (Bongos, Congas, Blocks, Chimes, etc) even if it's just shaking an egg.

Just about everything. I routinely listen to classical, jazz, rock, metal, adult alternative, blues, Rap/HipHop, R&B, Soul, I don't dig straight country but, alternative country like Lyle Lovett & Ryan Adams is great. I would love to be in a Ryan Adams cover band. I love music with great horn & string arrangements. For horns I really appreciate artists like Van Morrison, Frank Zappa, Beck, Cake, Chicago, Galactic, etc. For strings Van Morrison, Ryan Adams, Beatles, Stones, Joni Mitchell, Nat King Cole. Would love to do a Lou Reed Tribute!

Currently acquiring more gear in order to have at least 3 or 4 full kits. One that remains set up at home at all times, one for gigs that lives in cases, and one or 2 to keep set up at places I rehearse.
