ABOUT

I played drums all throughout my school years, then started up again in the mid-2000's. I'm looking for a regular, yet casual, positive, no drama, no drugs, musical environment. I'm very reliable, can practice with a band once per week and do occasional gigs. I have a professional M-F day-job so my practice times are generally limited to evenings. I would prefer to stay within a 50 mile radius of my hometown of Wooster, OH.

My equipment is all top drawer and in pristine condition. Drum kits are all 6-7 piece and can be configured to the music genre's/band's needs.

My first preference is to play smooth jazz. I find this genre of music inspirational and challenging and enjoy the musical freedom of its roots.

Given my age I also, not surprisingly, like the music of the 60's and 70's including light-medium U.S. rock, British Invasion, Motown, R & B, etc. I’m not so much of a hard-rock guy, though.

I also really like country from the mid-80’s forward, just as long as it’s not too twangy. In the 80’s I switched from listening to rock to country, preferring artists like Clint Black and Patty Loveless. Although I haven’t listened to a lot of country over the past decade I generally like what I hear from more current artists.

Finally I would also have interest in being a backup drummer for any of the genres listed above.
