ABOUT

Drummer with over 37 years of experience looking for Rock/Classic Rock/Hard Rock/Metal or a Country cover band to play with. I am willing to play with an original band if I find the music interesting. I am looking for a working or near working band that is currently playing, or an original project with compelling and fresh music.
What I am looking for from a band:

Working, or near working band situations, I am not interested in just jamming for the sake of goofing around
Players that have a professional attitude and work ethic
Willing to do the work needed to be better and tighter.
Good quality musicianship, you don't have to be a prodigy, but I want to play with people who do know how to play
Quality people, great attitudes, easy to work and get along with. Knows to have fun with this, but take it seriously enough to not mess around when it comes to getting the music and performance down.

What you can expect from me:

37 years of experience in various musical styles from Hard Rock to Country...I enjoy playing both.
Touring, recording, and gigging experience in a variety of bands and music genres.
I play and sing the songs as they are supposed to be played, and learn quickly.
Pro attitude, equipment, and chops. Reliable transportation, reliable person, I can be counted on to learn the songs and be on time
I don't do drugs, I don't smoke, and rarely drink, (never during a performance for sure), and no personal drama either.

EQUIPMENT

Pro level, Yamaha Stage Custom kit good for playing Rock/Metal /Prog/Country or Pop. I have additional snare drums for a variety of sounds. I use Sabian cymbals, exclusively, DW hardware, and stands. All equipment is of professional quality, very well maintained, and cased up to ensure that they remain that way.
