ABOUT

I lived, breathed and ate drums from age 18 until my late 30’s. I’m now 56.
I’m a native Angelino. In my younger day's I played in original bands playing mostly local clubs in Hollywood, LA, OC, IE, and sometimes SF. I also played many gigs in Chicago, Nashville, and Memphis.
I took a break from playing with bands in my late 30’s, mainly because of some health issues, but I continued to play by myself, or with a few friends, and a few parties. I really haven’t done anything serious in almost 20 years.
I moved to Cathedral City from Hollywood about two years ago and I love to find some new friends to jam with here in the desert. I’m open to many scenario’s. It could be just for fun or joining a serious band if it really felt right. Playing local shows would be great, recording projects will also do. I’m into original bands, and for the first time ever I’m open to a cover band. I just miss playing with people.
I have a simple 4 pc Gretsch kit, and I have an Alesis Strike Kit Pro, electric kit.
The artists I listed below are from the recent history of my practice playlist. These are the artists that I’ve been jamming to lately.
I’d love to find players to form a cover band and play songs from the artists off this list.
I’d also love to find an original band in need of a drummer. I’m open to just about anything. I just miss playing.
I never completely gave it up. I practice enough so I still have some chops.
