ABOUT

Looking to play drums for established or nearly established band in the NOVA area. Love Classic Rock, Blues and Rock-a-Billy. I also enjoy and like to play Cajun/Zydeco and Country. I play drums, washboard (played Cajun/Zydeco in New Orleans) and Cajon. I'm now retired and have the time and commitment for practice and gigs.

Looking to join or help put together a great sounding band that will not put people to sleep!
