ABOUT

Experienced Drummer with many talents just testing the waters in his new city of Boise. I grew up just north of Boston playing in original bands, and occasionally played the random, Hendrix, Dylan, Zeppelin, Beatles song. Then my stint in Nor Cal had me quiet for 8 years before I found my way into an Americana band. Now with 2 young kids, I feel like I can begin to re-emerge from my layer and step into rock/blues based band.

EQUIPMENT

I have a Gretch 7 piece kit with a 22" bass drum. All Zildjian hardware. I also have a yamaha electric 5 piece kit. I also collect and play guitars. As a drummer I always had a need to play other instruments besides the drums. I have 1 classical guitar, 2 acoustic guitars and 2 electric guitars. I also have a Line 6 AMP (because I hate fiddling with nobs to get the sound I want).
