ABOUT

Looking to form a MD/DE area band, make some incredible original tunes and play some shows. I'm certainly not above playing a few well chosen cover tunes either. I've played in several different bands and have the experience. I consider myself a "flavorful" drummer, others might call it over playing at times.

Lately I've become more about the groove, and really need to find that bass player where everything just falls together. Hopefully one not afraid to slap!

Very interested in finding a female vocalist, although not a must. More importantly a voice that can set us apart from every other band out there.

Guitar wise, I love effects and a heavy influence in jazz, funk and blues.

If anyone shares or would like to further discuss my warped views... please call me, or email danderson2786 or aim DrmnHipster. I am always open to ideas.
