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, Donavan Frankenreiter, Cake, Beck, Zeppelin, The Stones, Dispatch, Citizen Cope, Bill Withers, Van Morrison, Hendrix, Marley, and so, so many others...

Mid-2020 Update: Also looking for blues-rock/jam rock opportunities after my previous jam session group/sometimes-gigging band parted ways when two members relocated.

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, a small Behringer mixer, 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.
