ABOUT

Began playing drums at age 5. Began playing professionally at age 15; played drums in my father's blues band (BB Wolfe) for over 10 years. Self taught myself guitar, bass and keys. I sing, write and produce my own original material. I currently am a member of the Louisiana post-punk rock band The Vidrines. The Vidrines were formed in 2004 and perform all original music live shows all over the South.
I've played drums in many cover bands over the years with styles that include zydeco, blues, country, rock and R&B. I am interested in playing cover gig's for pay, I've played hundreds of cover band gig's throughout my career.
Performing original music live and song writing are my biggest passions.
I'm always open to new ideas and new acts.
