ABOUT

I Played as a kid 16 thru 19 in a local band. 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 the song, not for the showmanship. I just finished an11-month (12/21/2017) gig with Off The Record - https://www.facebook.com/OTRBANDNY1/?ref=br_rs a classic rock cover band. Not happy with the band's future vision. I also fill in for a group of guys I grew up with 50 years ago (Yikes!)

I'm always looking for new opportunities to better my playing and up my game, so If you're a band looking for a solid and reliable timekeeper, I'll be happy to audition for you. Would love to do more of a Blues type act. Just in case your wondering, I'm 67 years old.

Thanks for taking the time and don't be shy! By the way, you can also add Country, Rock-A-Billy, and Southern Rock to my preferred genres. I'm also a big Motown & Stacks music artists fan and would love to find some like-minded musicians. Best Regards, Bob.

P.S.- No Prima Donna's or Ego's Please, just a nice friendly meeting of the minds.
