I'm currently in one fairly busy band and filling in frequently with another. I also work full time and take college classes online during the school year, so my schedule is pretty full.
I would be willing to jam with the right people looking for someone to drum for a studio project or do some light gigging. My schedule is set pretty far out in advance with the other two bands, so doing a weekend here and there or gigs during the week would be fine.
In addition to playing the drums, I have been doing a bit of experimenting with electronic music, remixing, turntablism, and production, so if you want to do something with loops or something even crazier, I can do all of that stuff as well. I'd really like to be in a group that would allow me to do some of that stuff live and still be the drummer.

Basically with the amount of gear I have I can be comfortable playing with anything from a jazz combo to a progressive rock band. I change my setup constantly to suit the group I'm currently working with.
I have access to a PA big enough for any bar in Fargo/Moorhead. This PA includes everything a band would need to play a show and was designed to accomodate an 8 piece band with 4 horns. The owner would probably also be available to run sound, for a fee.
I also own a fairly substantial light rig including 16 LED par cans and 4 pro-grade LED moving heads. It all goes on a truss and runs off of software.
Never Been to Spain
Never Been to Spain Year: 2006 Album: Beat-Down - Demo Genre: Classic Rock
This is a track I did on a demo for a band I was in for about a year. It's a modern take on a classic tune...
Trippin' Year: 2004 Album: Doctor Hodgepodge - Might As Well Genre: Other
A track off of my old band's CD. We ended every show with this tune. Not exactly a drum showcase, but a good chance to hear the groove.
