Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm a solid drummer who keeps great time and learns from each song I play. Capable at improvisation so jamming will never be boring with me. Haven't explored soloing much but if given the opportunity I can kick some jams.

I've been with two group within the past 8 years. VoG, or Victims of Gravity, was a diverse assembly of (5) musicians. We covered 60s, through the 2000s. Our main claims to fame were Classic Rock, Southern Rock, Steely Dan, R&B, Motown and Disco. Motown and Disco were so we could fill dance floors and we had a lot of fun doing it. You can check the band out on You Tube dot com "Victims of gravity band" there are a number of Foxboro cable access videos and for older demos. You can also view the bands Face Book dot com page "Victims of Gravity" Band. there are many videos, tracks and pics. VoG has disbanded as of July 2017. The keyboard player moved to FLA and the decision was that we'd pursue our own things.
In the other band I was the drummer in the vocal group for a church in Franklin. Schedules got in the way and I stopped playing with them in 2016.

I'm looking for something similar to VoG. A group that wants to rehearse once a week and try to gig out once or twice a month. I'm in it for as much the comradery as the music. Committed to sounding the best we can.
