Skilled drummer, age 60's.
I am presently playing with a wonderful energized Western swing band Pearl Snaps. I feel very lucky to be with these folks and love their musicianship.
This band plays four to six gigs a month. Usually two of those will be on Saturday. I took about 17 years away from the music business to take care of my finances. Now you can say I am retired ( independently poor )and have space for more gigs. I understand the difficulty of booking so I will be very respectful of everyone’s calendar.
I am very flexible to music styles and creatively open.
My habit is to personal practice a couple hours a day, and I do my homework in learning songs.

Too many to even narrow my range of interests. Steve Gadd is my favorite drummer.
My favorite songwritersrange from Neil Young to Joni Mitchell to Hank Williams.
For larger venues are use Yamaha drum set with 22 inch kick drum. For smaller venues are use a Gretsch Catalina with the 18 inch bass drum.
All Zildjian cymbals.
