I enjoy creating original music. And, I'm willing to play covers too.
My name's Shannon Wade. I was born and raised in Miami, FL.
I've been a drummer / percussionist for 35+ yrs..
I'm into most anything that's good! I love Rock, The Blues, Funk, Punk, Jazz, Salsa, Merengue, Some Rap & then some.
I'm up for getting together with the right person and / or group of people and seeing what happens. I'm flexible on the music styles, and would like to have some musical friends to bounce ideas off of.
