I am a huge RUSH fan, and enjoy playing hard rock/progressive.
I am currently the drummer for the Nashville based Prog/Hard Rock band Bent Vent. We are a bunch of older guys with day jobs who like hanging out and playing some fun fairly complicated music. Sprinkled with Odd Times and enjoyable strangeness. We do it because we love it! I have been lucky enough to find a band in 2008, Bent Vent, that has been a perfect outlet for my frantic playing style. You can check us out at BentVent on here.
