ABOUT

Hey, Im looking to join a working cover band or form one to perform live ASAP. Willing to rehearse 3-4 days at first to put a 1st class show together and then as often as necessary to add songs and keep the list fresh and rotating. I can pocket drum, moderately flash or shine, preferring the first two, understanding the prime rhythm objective. I began formal training at 10 and have a total of 8 years of public school training, having played in concert, jazz, swing, marching and stage bands in the course of my formal training along with garage, party event and night club bands beyond that. It's been a while since performing but I have kept my rudiments intact through regular playing and have stepped up my personal rehearsal time playing 2-4 hours daily. I enjoy many different genres and looking to play covers that stray from the corporate list. Songs that everyone loves and yet can say, "I love that song!!! I haven't heard that one in a long time. Want to dance?"!
