Professional drummer, easy going, pro equipment, and pro attitude. I am looking for working or near working group. I have extensive live experience in clubs, festivals, and corporate events. I am available to play full time and tour or part time. I will provide samples with a band upon request and will want to hear you before we meet. I mainly play Blues, Blues/Rock, Jazz, Soul, Funk, and some Rock but no metal, punk, or hip-hop.
Don't let the age scare you away, I can still hold my own.

I can be reached at 630-961-3578
