ABOUT

Looking to join an existing band or form a new one. First gigging band was playing metal in '94 when I lived in PA. Moved to AZ and joined Pinga (2003-2006). Got sick of metal scene, joined a new alt-rock band called Sound Does Sound Good (2006-2007). The lead guitarist moved to Seattle so we disbanded. I then joined an indie-psychedelic band called Indias (2009-2010). I then had a short stint with Curse of the Pink Hearse. So here I am.

I'm looking to do something different. I'd like to join a compatible existing band OR create something catchy, atmospheric..bining aspects of crime jazz, surf, soundtrack music, swing, psychedelic...definitely something different from the typical lame metal or self-masturbatory indie rock that is in this scene now.

To hear samples of my playing from past projects, go to ://./trexdrums
Make sure to listen to all the tracks, because they are chronological...with oldest (metal, 2005) first and then working towards newer projects.
Also made some vids on my be channel, check it here:
