SEEKING

Band to Join, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar.

ABOUT

I am looking to join a band or find a lead, bass player and key board player. My style can be described as a “solid groove drummer”. I very easy to get along with and flexible, but have no vocal talents. In addition to my large Gretsch kit, I have a “cocktail kit” for smaller venues or stages. I am not a fan of rote or verbatim covers. I love to play with folks that can play off of each other and improvise. I am looking to have fun and make some money on the side. I do not mind traveling to practice or gig. It is not an issue.

Influences

Just about anything from the 50's through the mid-late 70's . But very much into early blues. Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Little Walter.Old country will work also. I am very adaptive. No interest in hip hop or heavy metal. John Bonham or Keith Moon, I am not.
Dino Danelli, drummer for the Rascals was my main influence, followed up by Buddy Rich and Krupa. Now some southern rock, Motown/Soul redux and classic C&W and real R&B.
Bonnie Rait, Van Morrison. Steve Winwood. In general, there is so much great music to be played.
