ABOUT

I've been a gigging drummer for bands since the 70s. A few were Messenger, Legacy, RockerBox, Mid Life Krysis, and Rock Candy of York Pa until March 2016. I have an expert guitarist. I'm looking for a few more seasoned musicians. I know the ropes, how projects work, and how they don't. I owned a sound & light production company for several decades doing gigs in Baltimore, Harrisburg, York, DC. My equipment trailer is still loaded with a complete powered system. I've got the big old school sh*t in the basement. I was the Wheelie Bar's house sound for 13 years. As for drumming, I'm rudimentary trained, beaten as a child, punished severely for giving sir yes sir any lip. I loved that man for making me the drummer I am. He taught me respect and discipline. He taught me a real musician never gives excuses, never whines, never bitches about the hardship of the daily grind. We just shut the f*ck up and play.

EQUIPMENT

I recently added NFUZD trigger pads to my Gretsch renown Maple acoustic kit. I have a growing guitar collection. And I've got production gear, both live and recording, equipment trailer, 2 PA systems (large & small which is also old & new), lights, all in good shape considering beer stains and that smoky bar smell. Actually I've got way too much shit. I need help. How about an intervention/jam session?
