ABOUT

*** UPDATE 8/12/17 *** Found a band so I'm going to see how this progresses. Thanks for looking at my post.

Drummer/percussionist looking to join/form NWI or IL band.

I love creating original music and have an extensive background in that area but will consider a cover project.

Looking for others into Genres of Indie-Pop/Rock, Pop/Rock, Power-Pop, Rock and Alt-Rock and some Prog-Rock. Also into Americana, Folk-Rock and Modern Pop-Country. No metal or hard rock. Which you were able to select more than 4 genres.

Seeking like-minded fun players/band who are serious, ego-free, professional, personable, reliable, drama free.

Start-ups welcome. Will consider doing an acoustic duo or small group. I've got plenty of percussion stuff laying around that I'd love to break out.

I'm 47 years old and I've been drumming for 30 years. Tons of experience (live, touring and studio), good gear, a good ear, easy to get along with. I'm not a jobber nor am I in 47 bands.

Past shows include: the Sundance Film Festival, Milwaukee Summerfest, North By Northeast (NxNE) in Toronto, the Taste of Chicago, Old St. Pat’s World’s Largest Block Party, the Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnati, Chicago clubs: METRO, Bottom Lounge, Martyrs’, Subterranean, The Note (sadly now gone), as well as clubs on both coasts.

Up for practice 1 to 2 days a week and aiming to gig 1-2 times a month playing clubs and fests in NWI and parts of IL and beyond.

Looking for project that would like to practice regularly. Willing to travel for right situation. IL bands ok too.

Can play to a click and sequenced/backing tracks if needed.

The samples of my playing are from the Leather Silk album by My My My recorded at IV Labs by Manny Sanchez (Umphrey's McGee/Fall Out Boy), and the other sample was from a 90's band called The Human Condition (recorded at Idful Music by Brad Wood (Liz Phair/Smashing Pumpkins).

Video sample includes My My My's song Leather Silk used in an MTV original series promo. Song starts at the 0:24 mark and ends at 0:48. Pretty cool.

Please have samples available. Don't care if it's a link, mp3, be video or a video/audio from your phone. Send something.
