ABOUT

I am currently seeking to join a Beach or Cover Band in the Metro-Columbia and Myrtle Beach Areas. I would prefer to join a Beach Band but am interested in Covers, Blues, Country, Classic Rock, Smooth Jazz, Trop Rock (Buffett/Chesney/Marley) or a Hair Band as well. Heck, I can play it all. I have Videos attached for you to sample. I Toured and Performed with quite a few Bands from the Charlotte-Metro area that include the 'Tsunami Wave Riders' (Trop Rock), 'StellaRising' (Rock), 'The Undercover Band' (Beach, Funk, R&B, Covers), 'The Rock Bottom Band' (Country), 'Happy Endings' (Funk, Rock, Covers) and 'The SandSharks' (Trop Rock, Beach). Each Band specializes in Venues such as Weddings, Town Festivals, Corporate Events, Oyster Roasts, Birthdays and Pool Parties.

I am also a Professional Drummer For Hire. Do you need a Solid and Professional Drummer?!? Did your Drummer bail on you?!? Is your Drummer ill and can't make the Gig or is he/she performing another Show with another Band?!? Unfortunately, these things happen as many Professional Musicians perform to earn a Living. Hey, it happens. Don't fret (no pun intended), just email me and I will get back to you. I have over 26 Years of Professional Drumming Experience that includes Stage, Touring, and Studio. I also have over 10 Years of Percussion Experience as well that includes Congas, Bongos, Timbales and other background fill ins such as Claves, Shakers, Rain Sticks, Wind Chimes, etc.

I am a former Pharmaceutical Rep, a Territory Sales Manager for Marlboro -Philip Morris and currently a Medical Equipment Sales Rep. Therefore, I am very disciplined in the Business Realms of Music. I can help Promote, Manage, and Market your Band so you are getting more than just a Drummer.

I am available most Evenings and Weekends. I have a wide knowledge of Songs from the past and present and can usually jump right in without practicing with your Band first. So, last minute needs are usually not an issue.

Just send me an eMail with a Song List, and we will make it happen!!!

Looking forward to hearing from and meeting you!!!

With much Aloha!!!! ~Tiki Jim
