Recently moved here from Chicago. I am a professional musician with 40 years of playing experience.
I have a BA in Percussion and have played everything from Jazz combos, big band, dinner theater, orchestral, and rock. I am a complete musician. Details mean everything to me. I can play anything.
I am completely obsessed with music and spend most of my time listen to, learning or enjoying it. Since I am 50 years old, I am no longer interested in that "rock star" mentality. I am about getting together high quality musicians who all want to perform at a professional level yet have fun and enjoy their time playing and performing for others.
Dedication and focus, reliability and hard work have been the cornerstones to my career. I don't drink, smoke and don't tolerate ANY drug use.
I am available immediately and would love to see what the city has to offer. I am available to play out as much as possible.
I would love to put together several projects...1) a killer small jazz combo...(drums, bass and piano) for corporate/wedding work. 2) A very high quality classic rock cover band to play things like the Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, etc...for live club and festival performances. and 3) it would be my ultimate goal to put together a high quality Chicago tribute band...3 horns (sax, trumpet, trombone) bass, guitar and keyboards..with strong vocals.
I am excited to see what's out there as I start over in a new town. All the best!
