ABOUT

Simple improvisational drummer with big ears laying thick grooves with pronounced kick and snare. Been playing in various funk bands around the country on and off for over 30 years. Great understanding of pocket, pulse, counterpoint, volume dynamics and have great timing. Looking for other like minded players for collaboration who want to play balls tight- Funk, Acid Jazz, Boogaloo, Cosmic Disco and Soul.
