ABOUT

About 45 years ago I played small clubs with friends for drinks and food. We were also paid from time to time. I played for the thrill and fun.
Up until a couple of months ago, I did not touch the drums, instead spent my energy working and raising a family.
I am now retired, and I am anxious to pick it up again. I would have to at this time label myself as a novice drummer.
I am looking for any opportunity to play my congas and other drums to primarily to have fun, become more proficient/improved along the way, etc so if anyone is interested please contact me. I would be grateful to sit in with a band,
