Lead Guitar, Keyboard.

ABOUT

Professional drummer living in Norfolk, CT, I play acoustic and electronic drums and percussion, and I dabble at keyboard and electric bass too. I'm 55, went to North Texas in the late 70s, then Hampshire College and University of Bridgeport in early 80s, where I was a drum & percussion performance major. I've played so many styles over the years, but I'm still a jazz/fusion/funk nut at heart. Lately I'm enjoying playing a lot of free improvisation and experimental stuff, but I'm open for just about anything... so if you are like minded ...please get in touch!
