Discipline Drummer




Contact information-410-963-9418

I have been playing since about 15 years old and started playing in School bands and talent shows and at Church every Sunday. Started playing in "gigging" bands since the late 70's, it was R&B, Jazz, Blues, Gospel and Rock. In '82 it was Gospel and Jazz music till 88 and I was educated and learned the importance of being a “discipline drummer” and knowing when to play loud and when to play soft and not solo during the whole song. In 89 I moved from Va. Beach to Maryland and I stopped playing. I started back playing in 2014 and loving it. I practice everyday faithfully.
