Looking for genuine people in the area to jam and a band to play with!

Lifelong music lover who started playing drums in my early 30's. 6 years experience and I'm passionate about playing music at a high level. Working towards that goal with daily practice and good instructors. I'm constantly improving and I'm looking to challenge myself, make new friends, and play with skilled musicians

I'm a solid timekeeper with a good pocket who's comfortable playing live, jams, rehearsals, and gigs. I have experience playing in several bands, open jams, group classes, and jazz ensambles.

Open to most musical situations: club gigs, low volume coffee shop type show (brushes), jam sessions, subbing, street performance, etc..

Rehearsal and jam space available at my home.
