ABOUT

Have been playing, after some time off, with various local musicians the past year. Looking for similar level of committed musicians to play and get together, and/or a band. I played rock, blues as well country back in the mid 60's through 70's and 80s. Did some studio work. Took some years off as life became so busy, but have been back playing. Can play rock, blues, country and some other styles. My style of drumming is to provide the groove that fits, not over embellish, but aim for tasteful fills. I enjoy working on a song, getting into the structure, the dynamics, creating the feeling and rhythm and drive needed for the song.

Influences

Like many drummers I respect and enjoy amazing drummers, like Neil Peart, John Bonhan, Ginger Baker, Mitch Mitchel, etc. Practically speaking I have enjoyed drummers who practice that "less is more". A drummer like Charlie Watts is one I admire with his moving the song, but laying back.
Music - I do like a lot of older rock, blues, funk, and some jazz. As well I played a lot of country back in the day. I can play current forms of popular and rock.

Instrument experience:

Drums:
Advanced

EQUIPMENT

Ludwig drum kit which can be put up to as much as 8 piece, though I play a lot on a 4 piece kit. I love cymbals and have a large collection. But again, I generally will play with 3-5 piece kit and a few select cymbals for the style. Also have some Roto toms if needed.
