ABOUT

I have been playing drums for over 50 years. I am easy to work with, a good reader, I am an excellent listener and I have very good equipment. My interest is in joining or forming a group for gigs. I am comfortable playing most genres particularly jazz, rock, R&B, funk and soul.

I am looking for a challenging, enjoyable playing situation.
