Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am from Baton Rouge, La and have been playing in the southern United States for the past 45 plus years. I have toured overseas twice playing blues originals and covers. Over the past 12 years I have played mostly covers. My two main bands were The Remnants, a 60s experience which was a 60s tribute band playing music by The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Byrds, Yardbirds, Cream, Monkees, Steppenwolf, etc. I also played for the past seven years with a classic rock, R&B, some country, top 40 and variety band called The Old Dawgs. I consider myself to be very experienced and have played a very wide variety of music in general.

I have also played DW drums since 1993 and currently own a set of DW performance series drums in basically the same sizes.

I am also very much into live sound and own several PA systems which include Peavey, JBL and Turbosound speakers which I run with a Soundcraft UI24 digital mixer. I also have a Mackie 8 channel self-powered mixer for small venues with Shure, Sennheiser and AKG mics
