Please contact me at Philderen at ya hoo dot com. Energetic drummer w/ stage and studio experience. Formerly in original rock band The Valley Low and instrumental prog band Carpe Nota. Currently jamming with a bi-weekly jazz band doing Real Book standards; I'm also up for an original rock, melodic prog or permanent old-school jazz band. Don't care about your age, gender, or looks (but please be at least 21 for normal logistics); only if you have a range of experience and hear the common thread among the listed bands. Would like to focus on writing/recording. I'm in an apartment, but can go in on a rehearsal studio or leave gear at your place. Not currently interested in covers, unless the circumstances were crazy good....

E-mail me at Philderen at Yah hoo dot com. Thanks for reading!
