ABOUT

I'm a 40 year old drummer looking to play out more.

In the broadest sense, I’m looking for a rock band that has some dynamic range. Something that can be modern sounding at times, and classic at others. A band that can mix it up and just have fun with it. Because of this, please, no specific genres of rock (metal, punk, classic rock, etc.)... I love each in moderation, but if I end up only playing songs straight out of an 80's rock show or asked if I can play double bass for 25 minutes straight I'm going to get bored. I just know myself.

At this stage of my life, I'm not looking to "make it", so if you are a band that requires 2+ practices a week, constant time promoting, and a lot of flexibility for random shows, I'm just not your guy. I remember those days and they were fun, but I'm more of a hobbyist at this point; looking to play for fun and meet some cool, similarly-minded local musicians for the occasional writing and jamming session or show.

On a positive note, I've been playing forever and although I've taken somewhat of a break the past year and half (lockdown and all), it doesn't take me long to get back into it. I can read music, comfortable in many styles, and have a ton of experience recording and playing live. I currently play in a band with old high school and college friends, but we practice around once every 3 months. It's VERY infrequent. Samples of my playing can be provided when requested.
