ABOUT

Former NYC drummer living full time in Rockledge. I've been very fortunate to have had a wide range of live playing situations and studio recording playing different musical styles and in varying band sizes. Was the MD of many of the bands I played in. I've worked with great musicians playing everything from straight ahead jazz, fusion, funk, r&b, pop, rock, metal, blues, Americana, and old school country. I've done bar gigs to festival-size shows (Woodstock 1999 emerging artist stage), I’ve had originally composed music used for programming on MTV and much more. Easy to work with, hard working and a quick study. I'm 100% about supporting the music. I'm ALWAYS sober at rehearsal and gigs and usually the first to arrive. I'm looking to join a band to make some head and ass-shakin' music. I’m open to any style of music or band configuration as long as the music is good. As for vocals, I'm a tenor. I can sing lead and back up vocals as needed.

Will send links to other music I'm associated with if interested.
