ABOUT

I am a drummer but also play guitar and bass. I have a full kit, reliable transportation, and a desire to write and record some serious music. I am not looking for a band with cookie monster growling/screaming vocals.
I've been playing drums off and on since late 90s but due to constant apartment living was forced to also take up guitar and bass. I don't at the moment have a practice place but am working on finding one. I've played a couple of gigs and have bits and pieces of riffs recorded but nothing final.
I am 35 and live in Gresham and I work full time in Vancouver (M-F 8-4:30p) so weekends are best for me to practice/jam/record/whatever. I do have a family but can find time to jam.
