If I bang on everything does that make me a percussionist? I have been playing drums most of my life. I am a lover of the funk. I am not technical or a metal head. I get off working with a slap happy bass player and laying down the backbone for others to play around.
I have played in cover and original projects generally classic rock style. In the last 10 years I have followed my passion for funk and groove. I put together, with great success, a 9 pc funk band with horns. But Im kinda done with the old school funk band thing and have a desire to modernize a bit.
Are you a DJ? Keys? Know sampling? I'm open to ideas... from Drums, Bass, and DJ playing swanky martini lounge groove to 20 pc lite strobbing techno with dancers and flame throwers. WHATEVER! I would like to jam with others that like to make people dance and feel good. Mix it all up with Art.. Sexy sexuality.

Main influences at my roots are old school funk. Stevie Wonder, Prince, Sly and The Family Stone, Rufus James Brown, Staples Singers, Isleys.
Now a days I've been really into more electronic style like Miguel Migs, Pretty Lights, Griz, EDC/EDM Music.
- Other Percussion:
So I started to change the way I approach the kit and rebuilt it integrating electronics in with a Funkalicious Tangarine Orange Premier KIt. Still learning how to make it all work but that half the fun isn't it?
