ABOUT

STARTING COVER BAND. My name is Todd 53 year old drummer. I spent the majority of my playing career in NYC —playing rock n roll, new wave —and retro R&R in the 1990's. prior to that (in the 80's) I played in San Francisco and more recently (2005-2015) in Los Angeles. I now live in Landrum, South Carolina. I am looking to finally put a cover band together with my amazing wife Dina. I have more than ample experience playing drums for many types of music, but mainly I am a four on the floor rock n roll drummer. I don't like hip hop, indie music, metal. or any kind of industrial. My wife Dina is a classically trained singer who is a master at R&B, Rock N Roll and Country. She sang off Broadway for years then gigged and recorded a few records back in the early 2000's—with a pro backing band in Los Angeles. She has a style that is somewhere between Etta James and Linda Ronstadt. ***Yes, she really sings that well. I will list as influences the cover's we'd like to play. Wherever we sit in, Dina brings the house down. I dare say, I've seen few that can sing as well. So this won't be an old man, drunken, brewery cover band.
