Band to Join, Drums.

ABOUT

I'm really interested in finding an original project or a great tribute or cover band. I need experienced musicians but talent is #1!

The bottom line is that I was born to play drums. I have a solid groove and maintain a rock-solid meter. I give 110% every performance and act professionally and humble.

BANDS I'VE PLAYED IN:

PRINCEOLOGY - Tribute to Prince 2018
THE NOWHERE MEN - Beatle tribute band, 1994-2017
AMERICAN FOOL - John Cougar tribute band 2016-2017
THE RUSTY NEILS - Neil Young tribute band 2016
BRITISH EXPORT - Beatles tribute band
VENTURA HIGHWAY REVISITED - 60s, 70s
CREME TANGERINE - Blues Beatle band
THE BRITISH BEATS - Beatles and other songs
HIWATT - 90s Rock cover band
BRIGADE - Original Christian Rock band

For the past 23 years "1994 - 2017" I have been the drummer for The Nowhere Men “Seattle Beatle tribute” and have enjoyed great regional popularity performing on TV, radio, studio, and stadium. I do a lot of fill-in work when bands.
