ABOUT

Professional Drummer Available for Weekend Gigs (Aliso Viejo)
Worked professionally in Chicago for 10 years and was a member of the American Federation of Musicians Local 10-208. Did studio work, recorded several vinyl records in the '70s and '80s and toured for several years. Experienced in performing beats from all around the world, i.e. bosa nova, cha cha, rumba, samba, magine, bagine, reggae, waltz, polka, swing, fox trot, shuffle, dropping bombs, ad lib & improvisation. Also experienced in performing various ethnic, i.e. Italian, Greek, Irish, Polish, German, Jewish, etc... Along with that, also experienced in performing standard stuff, i.e. Duke Ellington, Count Bassie, Frank Sinatra, and most all the show tunes.

I am responsible, always dress appropriately for the occasion, arrive to the gig with plenty of time to set up, tune and make adjustments. I play with both sticks and brushes and have a good ear for adjusting my playing volume as well as navigating within songs, taking cues from the leader, etc...

I am available for gigs on weekends only and will travel within 100 miles of South OC. My regular rate is $150.00 per gig. Serious inquiries only.
