SEEKING

Band to Join, Drums.

ABOUT

Seasoned musician with plenty of experience - seeking a working weekend band. Drum kit is my priority and I love to rock 'n roll, but love playing just about ALL types of music. I also like to jam a wide variety of percussion instruments. Have been playing gigs since age 15 - from small bars to huge arenas. Involved with warm-up bands for national acts, have done studio recording, even provided music and sound effects for theatrical works. I can play charts note for note, but also know when tasty embellishment is acceptable. My skill on rhythm guitar is pretty good. Decent lead vocals, excellent backup vocals and harmony.
I am currently available for weekly rehearsals and gigging 1 to 3 times a month. Contact me at doublehumbucker at gee mail. Less than 7 months til retirement and my new full time gig will be MUSIC GIGS!! LET's DO THIS THING!

Influences

Weaned on what is now called "classic rock" - Boston, Chicago, Deep Purple, Doobies, Rush, Zeppelin and anything from ABBA to Zappa.
Poke fun all you want about 80's & 90's dance music but the dance floor was packed with people DANCING and having all sorts of great fun! That's the kind of band I plan to be involved with. Work the crowd and get 'm going.
I am accomplished in a wide range of music styles including old and new country, rock, jazz, Latin, blues, bluegrass, funk, worship, swing, polka, etc. Don't care for punk, rap or hip hop genres.
