Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am avid player of all percussion, and can adapt to pretty much any genre of music. My love for drumming started at an early age of 11, playing in church bands and in jazz bands in high school. Later, in my 20s I started to learn more hand drums including conga and the African djembe, and playing in various drum groups. Ive also played in local rock groups playing the drum set. I would like to say I am all around percussionist. I also play middle eastern percussion including darbouka, tabla, and the Turkish daf frame drum. I like to make things simpler and sometimes play a cajon with brushes with a duo or three piece group. Please contact me for any kind of musical genre, I will compliment the music nicely.
