Band to Join.

ABOUT

PRO, experienced, mature drummer with absolutely rock solid meter seeking a working or near working band (YES - would consider a "start-up" if the situation is right). WILL PLAY NEARLY ANY GENRE OF MUSIC - I JUST WANT TO PLAY!!! In the past I have played - high energy guitar oriented classic rock (Van Halen, Ozzy, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robin Trower, Gamma) ALSO recently played today's contemporary country rock (Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert, Blake Shelton, Florida-Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Band Perry, Carie Underwood).

Good vocals (both lead and harmony), sings in "D" (440 tuning). Have played in "power trios + one" for 30 years. Seeking a situation where the love of playing music is as important as getting paid -- HOWEVER -- not seeking a situation where money is the only object. Looking to have FUN and kind of looking for a "home". I have absolutely no scheduling restrictions for rehearsals, gigs, travel. I get my enjoyment playing accurate music with other musicians and presenting a memorable show.

I have no problem driving a moderate distance to rehearsals OR if you like I have a "plug and play" HOME REHEARSAL STUDIO we can use whith a MARSHALL GUITAR AMP (100 watt combo, twin 12) and a HARTKE BASS AMP (350 WATT, twin 15), and microphones, monitors, etc..

If you like, I can also provide some great stage production - 12,000 watt brand new EV Front Of House PA sound system, 24 channel Mackie board, signal processing, EFX, EQ's, 1,000 watt powered EV monitors, mics, stands, LED stage lighting (color changers, moving head color changers, pin spots, smoke/fog machine), 2017 Berkshire 40 foot diesel pusher tour bus. I NEVER ASK FOR MORE THAN AN EQUAL SHARE OF THE GIG PAYOUT. My offer to provide PA and lighting is something I do because I have the ability to do it and it’s something I can do to help the band be more successful.

Here are video links for 2 bands I played drums in and videos of our band backing up national gold record recording star Pat Travers.
