Band to Join.


If you are looking for a fill in drummer / percussionist, I am your Guy!! I learn new music very fast and read sheet music / charts! I am familiar with all the popular Contemporary Christian and Texas Country Music. Call me at 832.814.6144 or e-mail to mark(at)4sanchez for booking information!

I have been playing drums & percussion professionally for over 25 years. My musical education includes being formally trained in rudimental drumming, drum set and Latin Percussion at San Jose State University. I have performed with the Santa Clara Vanguard and San Jose Raiders DCI drum corps. Professional experience includes Percussion Director at Watsonville High School, Watsonville, CA - 1987 to 1992. Drum Line clinician at various SF Bay Area High Schools. Current drummer for County Road 101, a Texas Country Band, 1996 to present. I also "fill in" as a paid musical guest for vacationing drummers at a number of Houston Area Churches including Houston's First Baptist Church, Clear Creek Community Church, Gateway Community Church, Hope Church Pearland, Friendswood Community Church and others playing contemporary christian music.

I have my own Latin percussion equipment, auxiliary percussion gear and three professional acoustic drum sets.

I am very comfortable and actually prefer a Click Track / Metronome / Stems at rehearsals and performances.

I am a serious, disciplined musician and strive to perfection each time I perform. I would be interested in discussing ideas to see if there is synergy to perform together.
