SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Singing Drummer Seeking classic Rock/Blues/R&B band looking to work in a permanent drummer for gigs. Also willing to work as an occasional sub. Prefer to rehearse in/near North Dallas/Plano/Richardson/Carrollton area.

Style: I have fun, entertain and keep the energy going on stage. I listen closely to what the other players are doing, and adapt to that so we come off sounding like a band. I deliver a solid, consistent beat, and signal breaks as needed to keep us tight. I can sing harmony on most any song. There are 15+ songs I can sing lead vocals on as needed to round out a set list.
