ABOUT

I am a drummer searching for other players.
Laid back, easy going, no drama, agendas, or hang ups.Hoping to get together with like minded people for fun and......who knows? No illusions of grandeur. Don't want to gig every weekend, or become a thing or change the world.......just want to have fun playing good music well with like minded people.

I grew up on "classic rock". Over the years I developed a real love for jazz/Smooth jazz. I would like to be in a group that can do some old school standard jazz, some smooth jazz, and take "classic rock" and tunes from other genres and put a little funky/jazzy vibe to them. Not opposed to integrating some more sophisticated music into the mix, ala Steely Dan, Boz Scaggs, stuff like that. Possible gigs ready when we are.
My basement could be used for rehearsal/Jam.
NO DRUGS!! Read that again. NO DRUGS!! Adult beverages are fine in moderation. Again....NO DRUGS!!! or hang-ups, agendas, drama, EGOS, attitudes......lets just have fun doing what we love to do!!


If this sounds good, get in touch......
