ABOUT

Experienced, versatile, and amiable (important, right?) drummer looking for working band or very-close-to-working band. My tastes are very diverse: love Brit & Irish folk, Psychedelic (old and new), Doom, B-side classic rock & progressive, and more.

Ideally would love to find something along the first 3 genres listed above, (or imagine a cross between Vanilla Fudge, Fairport Convention, and Blood Ceremony!) but I have played everything from 90's new metal, to jam bands covering Grateful Dead and the Allmans, to cocktail-party swing & jazz ensembles.

I can rehearse a couple of days per week, and would like to gig at least a couple of times per month if not more.

Links to my playing were filmed with a cell phone, but should convey enough to get me an audition I hope!

I care more about dedication and professionalism than age - just as comfortable playing with 25 year olds or 50 year olds. In previous lives I have played some bass guitar a little acoustic and mandolin so you'll find I "get" more than just my little piece of the world.

I play a single kick with no double-pedal - it's a philosophical choice - and I think you'll agree I do pretty well with it.
I have no vices but caffeine, no drama, and I don't incessantly play rudiments when you're trying to talk! Let's jam.
