ABOUT

Dependable percussionist and back-up vocalist from the Southend Louisville area looking for a band/gigs. Yep, I know…another drummer here. I have been playing drums since I migrated from the violin at the age of 14, basically 37 years ago. I have experience in progressive rock, pop and classic rock, southern rock, outlaw country, R and B, jazz, etc... Also moderately experienced in acoustic/rhythm guitar and have background vocal experience.

Just within the last six years, after 19 years of teaching percussion, I am embracing being a performer again, and since 2014, I have been playing in two regionally popular bands and have recorded on two professionally recorded albums.

Although, both my previous bands excelled in great original music (classic rock style if a genre needs to be assigned), I am hoping to find a project based on Gen-X alternative /dance rock and/or a pop-rock/cover/tribute-style music...something energetic that keeps people on the dance floor singing along. I'm not looking to take the world by storm and I'm at peace that my day in the sun for being a world-famous stadium musician has passed. I don't have the hair for it anymore. I'm just looking for some seasoned, like-minded, "let's go out and gig, but not every single weekend", no drama, no egos, looking to have fun, respectful kind of bandmates. If any of this sounds intriguing, feel free to reach out through a call or text. At the least, lets talk/jam and see what happens.

EQUIPMENT

I have professional drum kits/ equipment available, ranging from a small 4-piece Pearl travel kit for intimate gigs, two medium sized "Beatles style" Ludwig kits, to a large PDP/ DW Concept Maple "Peart" type kit for larger venues. I use Sabian Paragon and Zildjian cymbals. I also use electronic percussion (Alesis Strike Pro Electronic kit with Roland and Alesis strike pads for more modern sounds, effects, music and comic relief). I’m also capable of providing acoustic elements to any ensemble or project with cajon-style instrumentation and intimate electronic sounds. I also have (limited) rehearsal space available with sounds and mixer, if needed.
