ABOUT

As of May 1 2019, I am in a four piece Classic/Southern Rock group called Snake Eyes. Am looking for something to add to my gigging schedule. I am a professionally trained musician with 4+ years of intensive conservatory type training. I don't do drugs or drink ( well maybe a beer or two now and then). Hoping to get back into something. Am open to pretty much anything as long as the focus is great music and getting along. I have been thinking about, maybe, a 4 piece semi acoustic set up with 2 guitars, bass and drums/multi percussion. Hope for an emphasis on 2 and 3 part harmony. I am a Certified music teacher with BS on Music Ed instrumental concentration with 25 years of elementary instrumental music experience. Also extensive experience playing classical percussion and playing and singing country, southern and classic rock. Some small combo and big band jazz experience as well. Play full drum kit and had taught privately for many years up to about 8 years ago. Looking for like minded musicians who will come prepared to rehearse and to play weekly or biweekly and eventually be gigging 1 or 2 times a month. Emphasis on good quality music and excellent vocals and harmony!
I am friendly, open minded and easy to get along with. And when I give my word, it is my bond. Cheers. Jeff. Contact at 302 593 4558 or JWard 8396 at v e r i zon dot net

EQUIPMENT

Have 2 full Yamaha professional drum kits, one for smaller unmiked situations and one for larger venues and playing through a PA. I also have a Cajon kit I play in acoustic type venues which Aries in instrumentation according to the styles and venue be played. Have mics for all percussion instruments, congas, bongos and assorted hand held percussion. Will consider other purchases if necessary and to help a committed group. Thanks
