Drums.

ABOUT

My son and I are currently putting together a prog-rock/funk/jazz-fusion/blues jam-band in the Concord, NH area. We are focusing mostly on our originals and some select lesser heard classic rock and blues covers. Most of the material is instrumental. My son plays lead and rhythm guitar and piano/keyboards. I play keyboards, harmonicas, and electric violin. We both sing lead and background vocals. And we also have a kick-ass bassist who also sings lead and background vocals. We have a fully equipped PA/rehearsal/recording setup that includes a 6-piece Pearl drum set (see photo) and bass amp. We are looking for an innovative, solid drummer (who is welcome to use our drums) to record and gig with. Vocals and co-composing abilities are a plus. We rehearse in Salisbury NH every Sunday for three hours, in the late afternoon/early evening; what ever time works out for everyone.
