Band to Join.

ABOUT

Currently seeking additional drum work with a band that is established, and looking for a professional drummer to accommodate their gig. I can have your set list ready on short notice, and will be prepared to provide exactly what you need for the stage performance. I am not looking to start a band because I am a working drummer that is more than willing and able to integrate with a working band that has the need for a drummer in a working environment. Experienced live & recording drummer who has played on countless tracks across many genres, from rock & Blues, to Funk, Country, Big Band, and Jazz. I have a special love for groove & funk, and I pride myself on creating the right part for the song, not taking the typical "bedroom drummer" route and slamming as many notes as possible over your track. Schooled by Mars Scarazzo & Jackie Browne, I can read and write score if required, to include Nashville notation. With all professional drum gear at hand, and complete dedication to the right "feel" for the band, or the song, you can be guaranteed the results you are looking for. As a working drummer, I am always on time, with all pro gear, and very reliable transportation. Past performances include Mark Farner from Grand Funk Railroad, The Letterman Tonight Show Horns, Gary Brooker from Procol Harum, Forget Harry, & Third Party. I have additional references upon contact, along with professional testimonials for reference. Please, serious professional inquiries only, as I will not waste your time.

EQUIPMENT

DW Collectors series drums, 6 piece, with a full ensemble of cymbals and bells. Double bass pedal setup, all DW gear. This kit is also fully hybrid with drum triggers and the Roland TD-2 module that enables me to literally pick the drum sound that a band needs while on stage or in the studio. BT-1 bar trigger pad to accompany virtually any sample. I also use the Roland SPD-SX drum sampling system that enables me to include any full sample piece required to fill the space. In addition, I also use the Roland SPD-30 Octapad loop system which lets me create and store any rhythm track required to accompany the music. Porter & Davies BC-2 Tactile monitor system, the flagship of pro full body tactile monitoring, personal line six active monitor with pro modeling, Alien Ears "In Ear monitoring system, vocal mic, full internal acoustic drum mic system, and snake. I am plug & play. Let's do this!
