ABOUT

Long time, passionate, drummer with experience playing a wide array of music. I have been playing for over 25 years and have gigged professionally many times. I have a full medium venue setup for PA and lighting. Looking for professional but easy going, like minded musicians for local shows. Fun, not fighting... :)
