Band to Join.

ABOUT

Professional Drummer and Singer (lead and back-up) seeking working dance band (R&B, Funk, Motown, Classic & Contemporary Rock) for paid gigs and recording work in S.F Bay area. Open to playing benefits as well. Started out playing Rock and I enjoy playing a variety of other genres: acoustic, blues, country, jazz, latin, reggae, hard & southern rock. I'm somewhat of a perfectionist, but I'm also very easy to get along with, dependable, and like playing with folks who care about putting together a good/tight sound while having fun doing it. My playing style is solid (in the pocket) with feel and interactive (leaving room for the other instruments) . I play covers as close to the original artist as possible.
