ABOUT

Hardworking, knowledgeable, funky, musically educated, groove oriented, solid time keeper looking to start a smooth jazz/jazz project.

Very humble and easy to work with, love to get some gigs, work covers, some originals maybe, etc.....A little funk infused jazz preferred (I probably wouldn't turn down a hard driving blues band if it comes my way though-Bonamassa, SRV, Johnny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepard, etc...).

I'd like to make a bit of cash while still having fun with it.

EQUIPMENT

Sonor SQ2 in Mint Sparkle. This is my bop/jazz/smooth jazz kit. 12" tom, 14" Floor tom, 18x14" bass drum. Solid shell 14x6" Spaun snare. Various hand hammered Turkish cymbals...Istanbul, V-Classic, Bosphorus....all straight from Turkey. Small and compact set up, classic German beech sound. All top notch stuff in my opinion....at least for what I intend to play.
