ABOUT

I'm Jeff. I'm writing this profile on August 20, 2017.

Close to 20 years on drums, feels weird to type that. (Semi) new to area (<5 years).

I practice daily. I teach. Motivated and ready to jam. Have reliable equipment, Ample practice space, and reliable transportation.

LOOKING FOR:

I have a pretty good idea of where I best fit stylistically.

Singer-songwriter types. Pop/Rock, Semi-Indie, Alternative, More mainstream type stuff (See influences below).

I'm an excellent "listening" player and would like to get something original going at some point. So if you're someone (or a group) with tunes in their head/demos etc. that need to be filled out, reach out to me!

Not opposed to covers but not particularly looking to be in a tribute band (although who knows....)
My "Not Interested" list is small. Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Prog Rock, Twangy Country and the super "Experimental stuff" don't work the best.

I mesh best with folks who are friendly and are able to keep the ego to a minimum.

Reach out to me for contact info!
