ABOUT

I’m an experienced drummer-vocalist-percussionist who’s played professionally for over 40 years. When I was (????seventeen) young I primarily played both kinds of music: Rock & Roll. Then monetary necessities, maturation, education and my expanding musical tastes and palettes through the mists of time have made my talents and repertoire more eclectic to include: Country,Jazz,Blues,Reggae,Show Tunes, Symphonic genres, Praise, Jam band,Pop, Funk etc...I’m looking for bands to jam with, audition for and/or join since my primary band of the last 25 years broke up this Winter.
I co-founded,lead,played drums, sang and bankrolled that band for the last 25 years.15 years ago 2 partners and I (while also performing in aforementioned band) established and managed a successful PA & Lights production company.

EQUIPMENT

I have several kits (TAMA,Premier,Roland,Ludwig) but I usually use my TAMA starclassics (4-7 pieces) with Zildjian A cymbals. I also have a Roland octapad kit I can add to an acoustic kit or use it by itself. In addition I have a full percussion set up (congas,bongos,timbales,shakers,tambourines etc...) with to many toys to mention.
