Band to Join.

ABOUT

I've been playing in various bands and genres for over 44 years, with a large portion of it being original material. I played full time professionally in the 70's and 80's and currently doing semi pro. I began playing drums and guitar when I was aprx. 10 years old and also played a little piano. I layed guitar and piano down after a few years and pursued my passion which was and is drums and percussion. I've toured and been a part of many recording projects, one of which was in Nashville at Quad Studios, with a 2 time Dove award winning producer, also in Iowa and locally. I'm currently playing with a modern country band, 8 to 9 piece horn band that plays a wide variety on genres including Classic Rock, Funk, Ska and Country. I also play in a Christian Rock/ Hip Hop Ministry as well as playing on my Church Worship Team. Thou I'm a seasoned musician,I'm able to adapt with pretty much all age groups and I don't come with an attitude, baggage or and agenda other than to get along, have fun and create great music. I have top of the line pro equipment. I'm hoping to find, like minded musicians and perform professionally full time again, if the right opportunity comes along.
