ABOUT

Are you in a working top-40/blues/funk, etc. band and looking for a new drummer? Are you tired of drummers that have any of the following: big egos, bad meter, doesn't listen to other musicians, can't play soft or loud enough (and at the right times), overplays, has trouble making it to gigs or rehearsals on time (or at all), or anything else that bothers you? If so, give me a call and we can find out if we have the right musical chemistry...

I am an experienced (20+ years; 5 years private instruction) drummer/percussionist with a good ear and meter that can also sing back-up vocals. I come from a musical family and have played in everything from orchestral and marching bands, theme park productions, jazz ensembles, 80s cover bands, tribute bands, blues bands, and original rock bands. However, it's been a while since I've had the opportunity to play with musicians in the styles that currently move me, musically--funk, disco/top-40 dance, and blues. I'm looking to join a professional working band (based in the Broward area or south Florida, in general) that plays these styles and has (or is working towards) quality paying gigs. I have good gear and transportation and can rehearse or perform almost any night of the week. Did I mention I'm punctual? I sometimes think I'm the only one like this in bands I've played in lately, but it would be nice to be proven wrong for once; LOL! I'm not going to pretend I'm the best drummer around, but far from the worst. If there's one thing I'm sure of, it's that I am ready to start playing with musicians that are as good or better than me so I can become the best drummer I can be. I'm up for the challenge. Are you?
