ABOUT

I've been playing semi professionally since 'The British Invasion'. That's when my love for playing drums & music ignited. I enjoy playing obscure or good cover tunes. I like vintage Rockabilly aka Country Swing. I like old surf instrumentals. I run the board on good music, excluding street hip hop or sloppy punk sh*t. I'm not into original material at this time. I like vintage R & B + old R & R tunes. I need to work with grounded people. . I have a standard 4 piece vintage set of Slingerlands drums & prefere to keep my playing simple. I would like to keep traveling distance to rehearsals local. No more than 30 or 50 miles. We can talk further in time.

Influences

Vintage Rock & Roll, Rockabilly or Country Swing. . Obscure cover songs. A lot of artists from the 60's and some 70's. I like the old 'Yardbirds' type of sound etc. I can play anything that isn't boring and that has listening appeal. I won't play anything too commercial such as 'Fleetwood Mac' unless it is from the 'Peter Green' era. I like a lot of vintage surf instrumentals from the 60's I'm not into commercial sounds such as Steely Dan or The Eagles. We can discuss this all this later.
