ABOUT

Getting back into music after many years away. Looking to either join a serious gigging band that needs a drummer/percussionist/ vocalist (lead and back up) or form one. Eclectic taste in music and play many genres, but love playing and singing rock, blues and jazz. I've played many covers, but hate the note for note stuff. I prefer musicians that like to express themselves and even do some originals.

Also learning guitar, but not ready to perform.

Used to play constantly for years with 3 gigs a weekend when I lived in NYC. I do my homework and perfect my part of the set list. I get along well with the other children and am pretty collaborative. I'm clean and sober and don't wish to get involved in the drugs and rock and roll lifestyle. I'm very many times the comic relief and I'm easy to get along with. I am driven and like to hook up with like musicians.

I'm presently exploring a hybrid acoustic/electronic drum/percussion set. I'm most comfortable with rock (especially classic rock), blues and jazz, but don't let that deter anyone that needs a drummer. Vocally, I have a pretty decent range. Figure anywhere from Tom Petty to Don Henley. I can sing lead and backup.

I can be reached at Seadog35 at g male dot com. I look forward to hearing from you.
