ABOUT

Started playing in grade school-band. Graduated from Musicians Institute-PIT in Hollywood, CA and played professionally in L. A. for about 15yrs. I play all genre for the most part and I'm able to show up to a gig and sight read charts-live performance. I enjoy the music! However, I take it seriously by practicing regularly, showing up on time with a positive attitude, prepared and ready to play. I have extensive international touring experience playing major league concerts as well as playing festivals, clubs, corporate, a Hilton Inn jazz or society gig in a tuxedo, or big band shows on cruise ships and musicals in theaters. In fact, I've even played a few country gigs with Marty Haggard. Thanks for looking and listening. Please keep me in mind if you're ever in need of a high quality drummer. Email: eav350
