ABOUT

A drummer that has had some success getting back out there, and wants to keep it that way. Recent, relevant gigging experience in the Fox Valley. A systematic approach to learning material in an efficient manner, coupled with a strong work ethic and a strong affinity for the groove.

At this point I enjoy playing with other musicians, and have been fortunate over the past few years to have collaborated with some great people throughout the Fox Valley.

My near term goal is to play out twice a month with talented, focused individuals who enjoy playing great music at a high level and who want to have fun.

Reach me here: 1990rookout is my e-mail address name. It is a google e-mail address, hence it is a "g" mail address. Talk to you soon. . . .
