*** Not currently seeking bands! Will remove this from profile when I'm available again. ***

Searching for band to practice weekly, gig 1-2 times a month. Music for passion, not for a living. Add older R&B and Funk to the genres also.

I have been behind the kit for over 40 years now, but with limited gig experience. Some quite serious band work the last 5 years, but they have ended shortly after we reached the gigging stage by losing key members.

Big kit drummer, plays with passion. Grew up playing to many great drumming influences, I try to channel them to my best abilities.
