ABOUT

Hello all,

Here is me drumming for my old band in case you want to make sure I can hold down a groove. s://./absentiaband

Just started with a group of guys that seem to want to do mostly blues stuff with occasional digressions into jazz. About 75 percent cover tunes.

We all have separate jobs, so the gigging schedule would be fairly relaxed. Rehearsals are once a week at Astoria Soundworks.
