ABOUT

ddonato cox . net I took formal drum lessons for several years when I was a kid. Jazz style, I am a rock drummer primarily, yet well rounded with years of chops. Great ability to play just about anything. I play many different set ups that are appropriate but like to play a full set up with electronic and acoustic amplified drums. I prefer music that inspires me and music I tend to listen to. I have a great tone and an ear for sound.
