SEEKING

Band to Join, Rhythm Guitar.

ABOUT

I'm a pocket drummer aged well with a young positive attitude. I'm groove orientated and play for the song. I like melodic music w/energy & danceable. When creating beats I want to use my toms, subtle cymbal accents, while focusing on dynamics, so vocals and lead riffs are noticed

Played professionally in my early 20's - 40's. Played in semi-pro bands - rock, new wave, alternative. I can be creative and free or tight and groovy.

Genres - power pop, alternative, indie, new wave, new country, swing, hippie music, surf music, rockabilly, garage sound. I Love Music.

Have lots of experience playing live, in studio, as well as performed on local TV and past band(s) originals aired on college radio like KSJS, KFJC, KSCU, plus out of state. My press coverage has been w/ SJ METRO, Bitch Mag, SF Weekly, and others.
My arrangement of "Louie, Louie", will be featured in the upcoming documentary "The Meaning of Louie".
My arrangement of Louie received airplay on Internet +podcast radio station djoskar .
