ABOUT

Available two ways... Join a band OR maybe fill in for you and gigs, depending on my schedule. I tend to not practice much, but can keep beat pretty well. Not willing to travel more than 20 miles if practicing or to meet up as gas and car isn't the best.
I play a Sonor 16 kick 4 piece kit and a couple percussion kits for acoustic acts as well both with cymbals and hi-hats and all.

Lately I have just been being a host drummer to the tuesday blues jam with Wildcat O'Halloran at Pattis 410 in Chicopee and who I back up at times as his back up, back up drummer on gigs.

I am available for gigs that pay and only worth my time and trave. Rock & Blues are the easiest. but am not a perfectionist, just a player.
IF you need someone to perform on a kit, remember I can keep time, but won't have much time to learn any originals but willing to try, and covers I should be able to pick up if they are simple. I'm just someone who can keep a beat that will get job done.
