SEEKINGBand to Join.
Have played over 4000+ shows in my career with genres that include Celtic, Jam Band, Rock, Alternative, Ska/Reggae, Jazz and even classical. My studio experience is just as vast with over 35 CD's to my credit. While I prefer playing my full kit, I tend to do 30-50 shows a year on percussion as well. Depending on the artist I am backing, my percussion set up changes to better compliment the music. I am also proficient on the Bodhran.

Way too many to list, but Richie Hayward of Little Feat is my all time favorite both as a studio musician and live player. Met him twice, once while opening for Little Feat in Knoxville TN. Nicest guy you could ever imagine... miss him.

I play drums and all the percussion tracks on this. This track is not the final mix, but worth sharing. One of the tracks I laid over the percussion interlude was a a series of beer bottles. I called it the Beer-n-ator
