Medicine Man


Band to Join.


I have been playing the drums for as I can remember and have been playing professionally for the last 5 years. I moved back to New Mexico, which is my homestate, from Oakland CA, where we ran an underground venue called The Mindgaze Hut, where we'd have rock/free jazz/punk/noise/experimental shows. Prior to that I was living in Las Vegas NV playing with a band and would also perform on the strip. As of recent, I've been playing as of recent with Benzo III. We won numerous New Mexico Music awards and performed at the awards. You can see our performances online: Fb and be...etc. I'm a very charismatic drummer with a style all my own, which has been called Organic, which I thought was a hellova compliment, and best described my groove. I'm a very dynamic player and serve the song/music when I get down and know when silence is the best note played. I'm very alive when I perform and have a great stage presence.
