Influences

Can and have played everything from Big Band 40s to 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s and today. Proficient in any style. I am very confident in my abilities, there is not a song I can't play, I probably already know it and if I don't, give me 15 minutes and I will know it. Oh, one more thing, flawless timing! Always in the pocket.

Took professional lessons with Kenwood Dennard at Drummer's Collective in NYC

EQUIPMENT

I have two kits, one is a vintage 1975 Ludwig black Vistalite 6 piece set, very powerful arena set! I also have a Gretsch Catalina "club" set for indoor Gigs. I also have sound activated stage lighting with a footswitch remote I operate while playing the drums, very dramatic effect.
