ABOUT

I consider himself to be a groove oriented drummer. I love Funk, Blues, Old-School R&B, Classic rock, and dabbles in Jazz, Country and Latin on occasion. I have played for over 50 years, gigging in club bands up and down the West Coast. I love singing back up and an occasional lead vocal. Currently playing for the McPage & Powell band.
