ABOUT

I have played drums for years and have been in many bands , mostly in the Boston area. I just moved to Shelburne Falls, Ma. and am looking for folks to play with. I have always believed in playing for the song and try to make drum part musical, feel good , and not get in the way of the melody of the song at times using a less is more uproach.I like using homemade shaker and jingle sticks on songs that could use them and also understand lower volume music needs lower volume drums. I'm looking to play with some like minded, nice folks.. No drama, just good music.
