ABOUT

Seeking Jazz Band or individual for jamming. When I retired at 67 years old I started playing my grandson's drum set we bought for him. My wife bought me my first drum set (6 piece GMS CL Series) for my 68th Birthday and I have never looked back. I bought my second GMS set a year later and joined a Jazz Ensemble at Portland Music Conservatory. I developed a love for Brushes. Play standards, but open to all jazz music.
