Real Drummer


Band to Join, Keyboard, Other Percussion, Bass Guitar, Lead Guitar, Vocalist.


I'd like to find other serious musicians for an original or cover band. I have many different visions for a successful project but I need the right talent around me to support the vision.

If you are going to contact me please have samples of your work and pictures on your BandMix page. Even if it is recorded with a cell phone I would like an opportunity to hear/see your style/ability before we get together. Also, I would prefer to play with other musician who are within 2 years of my own age however, I am open to deviating if your talent and attitude are in line with my own. Thanks!

I'm a guy who thrives on energy. That being said I would like to replicate energy that has already been created: All American Rejects, Jimmy Eat World, Killswitch Engage, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Ellie Goulding, on and on.

Carter Beauford of Dave Matthews Band and Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan of Avenged Sevenfold are my biggest influences. I am very much into studying performance and technique so I watch a lot of instructional DVD's and concert performances with a specifc focus on the drummer. However, being the enthusiast that I am, I also take care to watch the musican chemistry on stage and try to learn from that as well.

Other Percussion:


I have a complete line of Zildjian cymbals including older K crashes both thin and medium thin (for different venues and spaces), K and A Custom rides and hi hats. I have a 7 piece Yamaha Recording Custom that I would love to bring to a gig one day but most of it sits at home. I generally play a 4 or 5 piece when I gig out inclusive of a 22" bass drum, 12" and 13" rack toms and 16" floor tom. My snare is a beautiful 14x5.5 Ocheltree Snare.

I also have many percussion instruments including jam blocks, chimes, djembe, agogo bells and more, and I have created a complete rack system built for playing percussion-only gigs.
