AUDIO FILES:
The audio demo tracks are a short segment of each song. I used a Roland Electric V-drums/V-cymbals kit, and am now back to my acoustic Pearl set. I contributed to backups in Sweet Emotion. Simple Man is based off a version by Deftones.

DESCRIPTION:
I've been drumming for many years. I tend to lean towards the rock styles, however I can enjoy many different genres. Strong harmonizing skills in thirds and fifths. I am reliable and like to have fun, but also take the music seriously. Pro drum gear, mic equipment, and reliable transportation. P.A. and nice practice space available.

DRUMMING EXPERIENCE:
5 years of lessons, 18 years in a busy classic rock/country band, and 6 years with an alternative/modern rock band. I've played genres including country and rock from 60's on up.

OBJECTIVE:
Playing rock-based styles, gigging about 1-2 times monthly. Not interested in originals, covers only.
