ABOUT

A diverse mix of sounds with a great ability to get along with others is the best description for me. I'm putting together a really unique new group that will primarily play really cool re-worked versions of famous covers. We are now looking for a drummer/percussionist . The rhythms will be all changed up from the originals kind of like the "rhythms del mundo" versions of songs (like Cold play's cuban clocks version) . This group of 4-6 people will play a variety of acoustic instruments (as well as some electric) including cool hand drums and it will have sort of a street musician vibe to it, but well thought out with great song selections across all genres. It's going to be a lot of fun, let me know if you're interested in this type of group !

In my past I've enjoyed playing live and recording albums in a few original music bands and a few groups playing covers , jazz combos, Christian rock bands, alternative rock bands, Christian praise bands, gospel musical ensembles, and coffee house folk bands/situations.
