ABOUT

I'm looking for a new band anywhere in the USA. If a great opportunity is available I am willing to move. Credentials : Runner-up drummer for the Minnesota All-State Jazz Band 2005, drummer for two original rock bands (Vicious Aloysius and Pantown), I've also been in two classic rock cover bands (Electric Allmighty and Dr. Salty), in 2005 received a $10,000 scholarship to McNally Smith College of Music when I was 18 years old (Drummer Gordy Knutsen from Steve Miller Band who is head of percussion claimed I was "the first or second best drummer" he had seen audition at the college since the 80's.). I periodically take lessons from Gordy and have studied under Greg Bissonette as well as the professors at McNally. I'm 23 years old and I would like to play with professionals. I also want to have a good time playing. I'm looking for a band that is playing regularly (at least 3 to 4 shows a month) and is getting paid (I'm looking for a minimum of $100 a show but more would be ideal.) Thanks for taking a look and I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Contact me at paulgroethe
