ABOUT

Looking for keys for our gigging cover band. Let me know if you want to audition!
I've been playing for over 25 years. I'm self taught, like multiple genres - classic rock, R&B, metal, hard rock, funk, jazz (fusion), latin jazz and rock, modern in your face rock, 80's rock, pop and some country.

I love to practice and I practice nearly every night. My attitude on cover tunes is "Like the record or better." I love a challenge so it wouldn't be often that I will say I cant play a song. I am also working on my chart reading skills.

I can be available to fill in as a drummer for classic rock and R&B bands on any night except Friday if I dont have a commitment in the band I am in for that night.

I like to play what gets people up on their feet...even if it isn't my favorite.

I believe communication and respect are key necessary ingredients in a band. If I play fast I want you to tell me. If you regularly play out of key I want to be able to tell you (Respectfully) without you getting offended. We all make mistakes. Lets help each other sound better!

I play for enjoyment and I like getting paid for what we do. A few bucks can help put milk in the fridge for the kids. Im not trying to make a living at this but the extra cash certainly helps. Besides, gas, drumsticks, heads, cymbals... aren't free so I prefer private gigs that pay well but I enjoy playing bars too. I also enjoy giving back and will often play benefits for free. Please contact me if you need drummer for a benefit for Wounded Warriors, St. Judes, Childrens Hospital or something along those lines.

I am currently in a gigging band with gigs on the books into 2019. We are looking forca keyboard player. We play rock. Country, pop, R&B, ...
We are currently having auditions so please contact me if you have any questions and/or are interested in auditioning.
