I am an experienced 64 year old drummer. I especially love music from the 60's and 70's. I enjoy improvising. I have a 10 piece (number of drums) Gretsch kit with Zildjian cymbals. I am off every Fri, Sat. and Sun to practice or gig. I am committed to a band that is working toward actively gigging/ See my videos here or on Youtube under "mitch buchta".
