ABOUT

Have played in several cover outfits in Kansas City
Most recently BOOM
Waiting on Amy
Maximus
& old original hard rock band Mi Dixie Wrecked few years ago

I am also currently playing Bluegrass and acoustic rock w Farmsickle Stick (which is everyone's side project from their other bands)

Since Farmsickle is playing out enough.....I am looking for a more creative or interesting project.

I would like to do an Original Alternative, POP, or Hard Rock group that tries to create something .but still tries to play live...with or without additional covers


I can do some background vocals while playing. I can handle 1-3 easy vocal songs and still play also. But don't expect a ton of lead singing if I'm playing.

EQUIPMENT

I have 10 Drumsets (too many at moment)
Rehearse usually 4 piece tama or pearl
Gig--usually 4 piece Gretch Catalina Club w 2 crash,(pictured) Rock Bag
Creative--6 piece Premier 3 rack toms, double pedal

I can play a 9 piece double bass drumkit..or 4 piece mini bop kit depending on the band/gig situation

All professional Zildjian, Sabian, or Paiste Cymbals
I have 5 sets hihats and 5 rides plus many crash options.
CAD and SHURE Drum Mics
Shure SM58 Vocal MIC
Little bit of stage lighting
I also have Yamaha Power Head 8 channel PA w speakers and monitors..I can run a small 4-5 piece band for your average bar or small outdoor gigs.

I can expand or swap stuff with drumsets....
Current electronics...have older Alesis DM5 system..and an older TD6 Roland kit...but could use some upgrades if needed to play live these are more record and practice kits...I recently purchased a WAV sample pad and Roland Percussion pad to enhance live stuff...Intend to upgrade this area if gigging more regularly and using it.
