Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Keyboard, Background Singer.


My name is Matt, I'm 29years old, I live in Portland, MI and I've been playing drums for about 12 years on and off and now I'm getting back into playing after a brake. Before my break I played in a small time Portland band called “Allergy 7.” we played shows around Lansing, specializing in Punk, Rock, and Punk covers of classic oldies. I played in “A7” for close to 5 years, made a Demo and A Full Length Album. In that time I learned a lot about music and music business. After that i played for a 2 man band called "The Chuck Taylor Experience" That was like a Black keys kind of band, It went well and we played a few shows here and there, but my singer/guitarist decided to get married and move away but such is life.

I guess I'm Interested in finding a group or starting a group that loves to play music, If that be just a jam band or something more.
I like playing Alternative, Rock, Pop punk, Punk, Rock, Oldies, Covers in new genres, and more, PLEASE NO METAL... I respect the music but don't prefer it, sorry.

The Music on my page is from my old bands Full length album titled “Cut a Rug” you may have to listen closely, the mix was a little muddy, and the songs are only short clips, but I think it shows some diversity. Also the Video was taken the day I decided to get back into drumming, so i'm a little rusty and the set was in shambles.. just look for all the dust flying...

If your interested please feel free to contact me through my email mbrown5097 . com , I try to check it everyday but I do have a 5 year old little boy and a full time job so its a little hard to get on the net when I would like to.

Hope to hear from you...
