ABOUT

I am 34 year old drummer, and I've been playing for 27 years. I love any music with soul and groove, but am a true fan of rock in all its forms and the styles that created it. I am looking for a constant gig with solid people that enjoy making music and are motivated to make some cash. With the Lehigh Valley's central location, giging in Philly, NY, NJ, Boston, DC, Baltimore, Harrisburg, Pittsburg, and all the surrounding areas is easy and possible. I love to play covers and originals, and am able to learn most covers in a few mins-hrs. I have extensive live experience with multiple bands and some recording. As long as the music is good, I'll play it.
