ABOUT

*Please note that I live in East Norriton, PA and not Norristown, PA. It won't let me put in East Norriton. However East Norriton and Norristown are only 10 mins apart so no big deal haha.

Ok so hello!! My name is Jason and I'm a drummer. I have been playing the drums since I was 2 years old (My father is a drummer) and music is my passion. I have played in 7 different bands in the past since I was 19 years old. I have written original music, recorded 4 CD's, done other studio/recording work for bands, have tons of live shows under my belt, and toured with a band for almost 2 months in the past. So I have plenty of experience.

I am looking to play with musicians who are committed to writing original music and getting it out there. We can also mix in covers as well. I don't mind how old you are, if your male or female, just as long as you want to have fun playing and you are serious about music and what it takes to get a band going. It requires work, sacrifice, and togetherness. I'm also open to joining a band who needs a drummer as well. I have a nice finished basement with plenty of room where we can have practice (see my pictures).

I bring a Progressive Rock/Jazz mix drumming style to my playing and I'm open to any musical backgrounds and styles that you would bring to the table. I am looking to join or start a band who wants to write music with our own twist, style, direction, and melting pot of influences. I lean towards progressive and rock type writing since prog rock is my favorite....bands like Neal Morse and Dream Theater. However it would be awesome to bring all of our influences together and fuse them together to make our own sound.
