I have a band now. We are looking for a drummer. All original music... maybe a couple of covers, but we're not a cover band. We're very "Indie" with definite funky underpinnings. If this sounds like something you'd be into, scroll down for my contact info.
If you're somebody that seeks excellence, knowledge, flexibility, and imagination, I'm your guy. I don't bring drama or ego. I only bring an unique musical sense, education, and imagination to everything I do. I am NOT a lead bass player, but I do have a very unique musical sense. I love, love, love music and it's inner workings. I'm extremely dedicated to (and passionate about) doing what's best for any particular song. I take music very seriously, but I don't take myself very seriously. I'm a joker and a cut-up. But, when it comes down to the wire, I know my stuff and I do my homework.
Look, I went to school for music. I've quite literally paid my dues. So, here are the disclaimers:
I spent many years doing covers. I'm just ready to start giving back to music. If you're looking to be another one of the many Classic Rock/Country cover bands in town, I'm not the guy you're going to want in your band. A cover here and there is okay, but I don't want to be in a cover band any more.
If you're wanting to play the Blues, I'm going to want to take an unique, interesting, and/or a very imaginative approach to it. Otherwise, it's just another cover band.
I have no problem with weed or alcohol. However, if you're getting high/drunk at practice/gigs, I'm not your guy. I have yet to find a player that plays well while "altered".
Okay, the negative stuff is out of the way. I'm a really dedicated, hard working musician. I spent about 8 years writing and recording a song every 2 weeks for a project that, in the end, I was overqualified for and I wasn't that into (Country/Pop). If I can do that for something I wasn't into, imagine the lengths I would go for something that really got me going. If you want to hear what I did, I'm playing about 95% of the instruments in these songs (guitar, bass, keys, harmony vox, and even drum programming): broadjam.(com)/songs/merjermusik
