I was probably 10 or 12 when I started when my older cousin gave me his old mixed set of drums.
My first band started when I was in high school kind of a Southern Rock band.
Then in college I started 2 bands "Painted Pictures" and "Smoked Rose" which were both Classic Rock bands sometime around the early 80's. While in Painted Pictures we performed in front of 800 people at a benefit show staged in Rahway State Prison.
I created a band for an event to raise money for The American Cancer Society called Heights Fest which we have hosted 2 times so far (2012 and 2014) where we named our band "SQUIRREL!!!" because it seemed everyone had ADD!!! LOL
I am extremely dedicated, always open to suggestions for different songs to play/perform, and very laid back.
