SEEKINGRhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Keyboard.
Currently working with my daughter on a project. We will likely need a keys player by Sept. 2023 (ours will be headed to Nashville for school).
Otherwise, I would maybe be interested in joining a working band centered on hard rock or contemporary christian music.

I am most certainly influenced by the flamboyant drummers of the late 80's. Tommy Lee, Robert Sweet, Rikki Rockett to name a few. Of course Neal Peart being a god to me.. but preferring some show with my drumming. I believe that a gig is a "performance" and treat it as such with showmanship while not compromising meter or continuity. Facial expressions, a couple stick flips or twirls and otherwise just my whole body moving to what I am jamming.
I was formally trained from 5th grade through HS and also private lessons. I played in Concert, Marching and Jazz band. I have recorded one full length original modern rock cd and also recorded a swing song on a charity cd.

- Background Singer:
Primary kit is a 2021 Pearl Export in Smokey Chrome. Sort of the kit that I have waited my whole life to buy. A 10pc kit, it allows me to configure for any size project or venue. My road kit has primarily been 1990 Tama Rockstar double kick with 4 rack toms. When I bought it I put black bottom heads on it and it looked like Lars's kit from Metallica circa 1990. Mostly all Zildjian cymbals (also tattooed to my shoulder). Lastly, a red 5pc Pearl kit that is used primary for practice if offsite at someone else's house. Oh, and I have a 5x10 enclosed trailer for hauling around drums and PA.. I prefer to rent PA if the gig can afford it.
