Band to Join.


I am a drummer relocated from Virginia by way of New York City, I have over 30 years experience playing jazz, rock n' roll, R & B, and everything in between. I have done studio work in NY, can sing both backup vocals and some lead. I am looking for a band playing mostly Blues and R & B with maybe a little Southern Rock and some Classic Rock. I would prefer a band playing a few club dates each month, a band that has players with 10+ years experience, and are easy to work with. I AM NOT interested in head trips, egos, partying and getting wasted, and bad attitudes. You can reach me at dana(at)thebeckster(dot)com. 7039811988
