SEEKINGBand to Join, Lead Guitar.
I'm a drummer/percussionist looking for steady work. Anything, studio, fill-in, one nighters, last minute, any and all. I don't mind playing for one group or several as long as we're all stable, proficient, professional, and serious without taking ourselves seriously. A bit about me: I'm 34, playing 20+, performing for 15 of those. You name I've played or recorded it at some point... jazz, rock, funk, r&b, latin, hip hop, electronic,country, up, down, the list goes on.
I'm studied and versatile. I lived and played in L.A. for a couple years. I've worked in several drum shops so I've got gear for pretty much any occasion. I play for the song and for the crowd, not my ego because entertaining them and keeping them in the venue drinking / schmoozing is what pays the bills.
