ABOUT

Like most, I played as a kid 16 thru 19 in a local band, and then life happened. Picked up the sticks again about 15 years ago and took some lessons to learn and read music notation. I play by ear and am a SOLID timekeeper.

No fancy chops here, I'm not a technician. I play for the song, not for the showmanship. I'm always looking for new opportunities to better my playing and up my game with better musicians, so If you're a band looking for a SOLID and reliable timekeeper, I'll be happy to audition for you.

NO ROCK / CLASSIC ROCK PLEASE! My preference is Blues, R&B, Mowtown, etc. If you're wondering, I'm 70 years old.


Regards,
Bob.
