Drummer John F


Band to Join.


Primarily looking to play groove oriented rock covers, ideally for a crowd, but jam sessions work too. Anything with a groove is worth considering, for example: G Love, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Dirty Heads, Black Keys, Eric Lindell, JJ Grey, Jet, Kravitz, Donavon Frankenreiter, Cake, Beck, Zeppelin, The Stones, Dispatch, Citizen Cope, Bill Withers, Van Morrison, Hendrix, Marley, and so, so many others...

Mid-2021 Update: Earlier this year I started drumming with The Stereo Types (thestereotypesband dot com), playing roots and blues influenced rock originals and covers, so that leaves little time for other musical ventures. As schedule allows, I am still interested in fill-in or short term music projects, recording, or jams in the near future.

Wide, varied, and have evolved into the list above that I listen to most these days, with an occasional honky tonk, Texas blues, jam band, or reggae mix thrown in.

Played in multiple blues-rock/blues/funk cover bands since college and alternative/progressive rock bands before that, along with traditional jazz, with influences from those and other genres.

Instrument experience:

Other Percussion:


Large old set of Ludwigs, small set of compact Tamas, Zildjian cymbals for both, Shure microphones, small Behringer mixers, Roland Cube monitors, Latin and hand percussion, cases, and a vehicle to get me there... I prefer a compact setup that fits better in a venue and is easier to transport.
