The ever changing band life...
Am currently envisioning a Dirty Soul acid jazzy thing with a bite of Texas funk. Prefer more originals in the mix. Got lyrics; not a strong vocalist. Also wouldn't mind venturing into a Traffic/Blind Faith Americana jazzy groove. Love acoustic resonance! Swampy blues, Allman Bros, Little Feat, Joe Cocker, Traffic, CCR, and a million others.
- Other Percussion:
Tama, Gretsch, Vintage Ludwig, Mapex cocktail, street wise suitcase bass drum set.
Roland SPD,DrumKat all pro cymbals, congas et al....
Available practice spot in Ellicott City on occasion.
I have a strong ear for balance and tone...my mantra is "play to the first table; not the rafters." Create a feeling that invites the audience into your groove...don't smash it in their face. Everyone remembers how you made them feel...everyone.
