Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a versatile drummer with over 20 years of experience. I have played with rock, country, red dirt, cover, christian, jazz and other bands as well as in theater instrumental pits. I am currently looking for fill in opportunities or possible full time gigs if the situation is right. I really enjoy strong vocals and harmonies. I can read drum set music and play several other types of percussion. I practice several times a week and am always trying to better myself. I also play guitar, bass guitar, piano and harmonica. I wouldn't consider my self good enough to play in a serious band with those instruments but knowing the basics of them allows me to communicate better with the other musicians around me. I am truly passionate about music and my drumming. Playing music takes me to another place and being part of a great band is an experience that can't be matched.
