ABOUT

I've been playing drums since I was 8 (that's 50 years ago). Played in different cover bands through high school and college, but not much since. Primarily playing in praise bands for the past 15 years. Moved to Florida last year and I thought I might like to find fellow musicians to jam with and maybe do the occasional gig. (I have a full-time job so not looking to make this a career move).

Influences

I am currently the drummer for the band Alyce Dean. I played primarily southern rock in high school, alternative in college, contemporary Christian the past 15 years. My favorite drummer is Richie Hayward of Little Feat (I wish I could play as well as him, RIP), Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, typical '70s acts like Boston, Kansas, Eagles, BOC, Styx, et. al., B-52's, Talking Heads type stuff in the 80's. I played with a zydeco band in the northeast for a few months and fell in love with BeauSoleil. (Are there zydeco bands in Florida?) I love playing blues, funk, rockabilly, everything but speed metal really.
