ABOUT

Band Leader of the Band TopShelf (www.thetopshelf.band)
Drummer and percussionist with 25+ years experience playing almost all style of music, from classic rock, blues and country to jazz, swing, funk and others.

Always on the lookout for talented vocalists, bass, keyboard and guitar for fill-in work, or as a backup in the event I need to replace a member for TopShelf.

Open to additional opportunities with pros / semi-pros with good pitch, vocals, tempo and attitude to play 2-3 times/month plus practice. I especially like groups with strong vocals, and enjoy building the phrasing and dynamics. My sweet spot is probably a mix of country, funk, classic rock and blues, but I'm open to all kinds of music. As reliable as they come with pro gear and attitude, no drugs, and no need to be 'the star' of the show. Just seeking solid musicians who want to have fun and take responsibility for tempo, pitch, dynamics and overall performance.
