Do you need a new drummer? One that has years of experience? One that is professional? Disciplined? Can read and write music charts and can sing harmony?

If you do, then I’m your musician!

I am a professional drummer and musician, located in Chicago. I possess many years of experience working in Chicago area venues and studios. Clubs, weddings, corporate events – you name it! I have a wide variety of musical tastes and have played in many diverse ensembles and bands: Rock; Pop; Punk; Blues; Horn Bands; Funk; Jazz; Classical. I can read and can transcribe music both classically and as chord charts. My gear is of top-notch quality. I am a professional musician’s professional.

With Tim McCarthy, you employ more than a drummer…a complete musician! Tim at sticksmc dot com for more information and examples of my work and abilities.

Thanks for your time and consideration. Hope to hear from you soon!
