Band to Join, Drums.


I am Looking for a highly skilled drummer who truly enjoys playing a variety of rhythmic styles, heavy to light, in a thoughtful way that brings impact to a song. Attention to the pocket and comfort with odd meters is highly desired. This musical project is based in the Annandale, Falls Church area with plans to play local gigs and regional festivals. Original Jam-Fusion-Progressive plus classic rock covers by Jeff Beck, Rush, Genesis, Muse, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Porcupine Tree and others. Target audience will feel the energy of musicians creating live music with underlying structure but lots of room for surprises. As a composer for small films, soundtracks and commercials I am looking to create a wide range of musical experience for an audience with interesting tonal and rhythmic explorations and a few cinematic journeys along the way.
