ABOUT

"Drummer / Percussionist Looking To Jam - Work With Primarily Original & Light Cover Band LI / NY Area / TSA Experienced & very creative jazz, prog-rock, pop style drummer (utilizing light Jazz Sticks) complimenting pop â?? Rock- Jazz â?? Blues & Ballets, (along w - Reeds & Brushes when required) Also playing assorted percussion which compliments my main (very full) trap set.

Enjoy writing words to original music if given the opportunity! Definitely over thirty (although young @ heart,) & though I have a small business to support my family, have been playing a long time & really enjoy arranging - fine tuning original tunes.

I have & can play all the standards w-brushes & reeds; (light brush-like sticks) fluently as well as my jazz sticks.

Personally looking to compliment other musicians & their music as best I can w-small excursions of my abilities along the way!

If there is an interest & availability to possibly jam, play, perform &/or record with a mature technician please reply or email initially @ JimB@Agde.Com &/or call @ 1 (631) 434 3342

EQUIPMENT

/// As for drums - traps & percussive, I play a very full & melodic kit & set, tuned more for jazz, rock &/or pop ballets. The percussive side that surrounds my set are melodic chimes, template (tuned) blocks, various tuned splash cymbals along with tuned cow bells, tambourines all played with sticks reeds &/or brushes in real time while performing various songs! Though I do have a small xylophone I am not as proficient on that as I prefer to be! (But intend get there!) I also have assorted percussion which I do utilize when required such as Melodic Tree Bells, Triangles, Roto-Toms, Congas & so on��! Looking to eventually procure Tympani & Tubular Bells�.. Ready to compliment any recording!
