Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm a drummer looking for a band to play with, or people to form a band. I have a normal day-job and can't really tour (except maybe over a long weekend) or play much during the middle of the week. I like experimenting, creating as well as playing covers. I haven't been in many bands over the years due to school and work, but would love to open this door back up in my later years, ha!

I don't know much about pop music today...I suppose my favorite pop songs my kids have listened to are "We Are Young" by Fun, and "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons. The only ones I really remember!

EQUIPMENT

Early 70's Ludwig drums, decent cymbals (Zildjian, Paiste, Sabian, Istanbul). Used to play double-bass kit (24", 22"), but now prefer single kick with just 2-3 toms. Old style dimensions, not the deep kicks popular in the 80s-90s. Heck, a 4-piece would be fine. Have a set of older electronic drums (Roland TD-7 'head', Dauz pads, decent rack) but I'm just not into them. Have a few mics - AKG D-112 kick, some 57's...maybe 3 left, they tended to get stolen over the years, some cheap condensers.
