ABOUT

I am a dedicated professional drummer looking to merge with a GIGGING BAND or gather up some talented musicians to form a gigging band. Mostly, I am looking for a band in which the group has all or most tunes in place and ready or almost ready to gig, have fun and make some money!! I own a business, so yes, I can support myself but I Liv4Drums! Just send me a song list and I will do the rest to secure my part. I fall in the pocket of a groove effortlessly and hold time that stands up to a metronome. I'm serious about my musical future and I want the right people who have the right attitude and communication to help us all achieve our goals. I look to gig at least 2-3 shows a month but the more the better.

I am an energetic power drummer ready to ROCK!!!. I am a laid back drummer with dynamics and finesse to traditionalize that country. I can drive a truck down that modern country road. I can play the blues right along with the best of them. I can groove the funky all day long and I can metal down the hatches!!

I am looking for a band that has the potential and drive to be one of the areas favorite bands. So please, NO UNRESOLVED ISSUES, or DRAMA to get in the way of that.
I take my position very seriously but embrace the true meaning of having fun as a musician. I am looking for fellow musicians who are TEAM PLAYERS, possess a POSITIVE ATTITUDE towards the band and its members and act somewhat like friends between sets. No dictators please! Had enough of that! (Unless you know what you're doing of course).

I have a wide spectrum of styles and can play just about anything that is thrown at me. By learning many genres of music including Classic Rock, Modern Rock, Classic Country, Modern Country, Blues, Rockin Blues, 80s & 90s Metal, Grunge and many more. I have learned to utilize and combine all of the above-mentioned genres/styles to develop my very own signature/style of playing, giving me a very large library to choose from for originality or original projects.
