ABOUT

I've been playing drums my whole life. Hard core about it through college then after took about a 3-5 yr break. Met my most recent band (amad-jamal; LA Underground HipHop) and started playing again. I love to play. I really don't get enough opportunities so I set this up hoping to make some connects and get something new going. I like just about everything but if I had to put one word to my playing style it would have to be "funk". I love the space in between but that doesn't mean that I gotta play on every beat. I like that jerky feel and i live in the off beat. Bottom line... i just love to play. Hit me up at kurtfagan at dot com.
