SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Trumpet, Keyboard.
Drummer/percussionist. Performed for 10 yrs as full time military musician in USAF bands ('06-'16) where I played several hundred gigs with rock bands, jazz combos, big bands etc. I also have an orchestral background; performed with several regional orchestras over the years, graduated from Peabody in 2003. I can play to a click fine, show up on time, learn the tunes, play simply, in the pocket, and help load the gear.
Currently I am interested in playing the most lucrative gigs possible regardless of genre, generally speaking that means wedding/corporate bands and not original projects, or jazz, as much as I love it.
I'm also looking for a fiddle player and female vocalist for a pop country band, and male vocalist for an 80s glam/hair band-- both located in central MD.
If you treat music as a business; are punctual, sober, organized, polite, then I look forward to talking with you about potential music/business opportunities.
