ABOUT

Drummer of almost 35 years with Texas/Louisiana roots looking for a new gig. I've played almost every style of music from Metal to Cajun - from the studio to the stage. My drumming focus has always been: (1) Timekeeping, (2) Groove, (3) Style. I personally don't care for playing with a click track, even though I have. I find that a click can smother the organic feel of music unless it's absolutely necessary (backing music tracks, etc.) My favorite style of music for the past 10 years is Red Dirt Country/Texas Country, but I dig jam-band styles and fusion music that GROOVE also. I also play rhythm and acoustic guitar. I prefer to play with folks between 30 and 50, but if you have the skills and maturity, then I'm willing to dialogue with you. I don't mind drinkers - I drink myself - but I'm not dealing with drunk musicians on stage or people who can't play because they're too wasted.
