Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a talented 47 year old self taught drummer looking to jam and play out at local bars for pay. I am looking for dedicated musicians or bands who love music and having a good time. I want this experience to be fun & stress free, yet I want it to be serious when the time comes to play the music and learn it properly.

I've been playing off and on for as long as I can remember. I've played at open mic nights before, but have never gotten paid to play. I want to do what I love to do which is to play music. If we can make a little scratch from it to that would be a bonus. It's as simple as that!

I consider myself a solid drummer who with practice could be really-really good. I learn the rhythms to the songs first and then as I get more familiar with the beats I add in the fills. My approach is to work hard and get as close to the original production of a song and then put my own spin on it.
