ABOUT

Contact: emailtroyedlin

Experienced drummer looking for a project. Looking for a rock band (hard rock, metal, industrial, or something in between) or perhaps a talented hip-hop group. As long as the musicians are talented and know what they're doing.

Cover bands: I'm willing to jump into an already established, already gigging cover band. If I'm playing covers, I have to get paid. Period.

Original bands:

I'm not trying to be a rock star or have any illusions of "making it big." But that doesn't mean that I don't perform like a rock star when I hit the stage. I believe in putting in 110%, playing my best, putting on a killer live show, and building a following. Ideally, I would like to rehears once a week, preferably on the weekend. Depending on the project, I am negotiable on that (meaning, I'm willing to flex the muscle a couple of times a week to get up to speed so we can work on smoothing it out to once a week jams). I am available to play locally and regionally a couple of times per month, but have no desire to be out for weeks/months at a time to go on tour. I have a family, mortgage and day-job. So, unless a band/label can offer me more than the annual salary I make at said day-job, then I am not available to "live the dream" (aka living in a van with a 4 other dudes playing for sandwiches and beer).

I have a great sounding kit, my own transportation, and am reliable.

Thank you.
