SEEKING

Band to Join, Bass Guitar, Drums.

ABOUT

I am a retired police officer and firefighter (R-E-T-I-R-E-D, so try not to trip because i USED to be a cop!!). I am drummer that is looking to join a band that is either currently gigging, or soon will be. I have an extensive acoustic Tama kit, and a tasty electronic Alesis kit. My availability will depend on how far i have to travel to rehearse. I also write lyrics and can play the bass and some rhythm guitar, so i am very interested in kicking out some original music as well.
