Really good music, Really Good Players, Really good times, Really Good Money, or really cute ladies... from gig to gig...I'm gonna need two from that list
Jazz, Funk, Lounge, R&B , all forms of Country, Blues, Funk, Latin, Grooves and Jam Bands
Progressive and Rock
I am NOT interested in verbatim "play it exactly like the recording"....
I have done a kabillion society/ tuxedo gigs where our max volume was below a speaking voice.....and I have done jazz combo, big band jazz .... and 100+ Orchestra gigs.... but I have also done the wide open full tilt Country Stomps and Metallica gigs..... what I PREFER.... is all of the above.
Steve Gadd, Weckle, Zappa, Carlton, Atkins, Beck
Steely Dan, Foreplay, Daryl Hall,Glenn Campbell, Metallica, Yes, ZZ,
Almost everything out of Nashville
Music is a live conversation.
I do really enjoy playing MANY different styles and venues. It's not the style of music... but rather the quality of the people, personalities and musicianship that would make or break the deal for me.
I did my first New Years Gig when I was 12.. yes really.
First Concerts were Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald.... and then Pink Floyd, Yes, Deep Purple, ELP
Most recent concert was Yes and then before that....FourPlay .. Larry Carlton

yup... Stravinski ... the first time "Right of Spring" was played ... the audience rioted....
because it was new and ground breaking.
don't assume that your the best.... but also... dont assume that what you hear on the recording is THEIR best.... move foreword....
I currently own MANY drum sets including a 1960/1970s Rogers, an electronic Roland TD-12 and two Pearl Export kits ( for Florida outdoors and rock playing)
