SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Pro drummer based out of Southern NH. I've played in many bands/projects over the years, both in the studio and on stage locally and abroad. In my travels, I have covered and studied many styles and genres. Most recently, I have been performing in various modern country bands in the New England area.

Currently, my only music related commitment is with singer/songwriter Tom Dixon from Nashville, TN, in support of his Northeastern/New England dates. His annual NE dates average 3-10 shows and are known well in advance.

Comfortable in my currently sparse gigging schedule, but I would consider jumping into something, if the right fit came along.
The right fit, would be - A fun, LOW maintenance, fair paying, local part time project. Weekly rehearsals and gigging 8 times a month, is no longer of interest to me. Ideally, I'm looking for like-minded players, that seek fair compensation and don't consider music a hobby. Musicians who enjoy spontaneity and improvisation, but also do their homework, so we can show up and nail a gig at any given time.
