SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Thanks for checking out my profile!

I'm a damn good trans drummer (and lead or back up vocalist) seeking an established band, ...but I'm fine with meeting other serious and COMMITTED musicians trying to get a project off the ground.

I'm a team player, serious, committed, and dependable. I can be your drummer, or your singing drummer or your lead vocalist who fronts the band.


I'm a solid foundation drummer, not flashy. Beat keeper, tempo manager, song structure and cues anchor. Not a jazz drummer. I'll play anything but I'm NOT into funk or rap at all, sorry. I do NOT have a female's voice for most songs, I'm a tenor.

I've 45 years of drum experience ....and have my own home with space to rehearse in Ledyard, Ct, including a small PA system (4 channel mixer, 2 self powered monitors, 4, SM-58 mics, and stands). Since I am retired, I can come up to speed on songs quickly. I'm available 24/7.

My desired rehearsal travel radius is 50 miles from Ledyard, CT (06335).

Please check out my band,

EQUIPMENT

I'm a double kicker.with a LH and RH hi hat set up, and use a corded Shure head set microphone.


Geezus! It just makes me laugh how little effort many here put into their profile. Ya gotta market yourself, duh.

If you seriously wanna network with others, you need to post picture(s) of what YOU look like, not some stock photo of a fucking guitar.

You need to upload a vid clip or 2 so we can see what you look and sound like, any damn smart phone can do that.

Many member's audio files are NOT of them, but are of the original artist performing the song. That does not sell you. And unless you credit the artist, it is deceiving.

Many are confused as to whether they are a musician looking for others or if they are a band, i.e: clueless. If your a solo rhythm guitarist looking for others ......but list yourself as a band? ....your wasting our search time.

If you are a band looking for instruments A to Z but really only seek a lead guitarist? Your wasting our search time.

Still.... good luck in your quest!
