ABOUT

I have been a session drummer for many years and owned a recording studio during the 1980's and early 90's in Boulder Colorado specializing in movie soundtracks & pop 80's style electronic music. That turned into a touring band for over 10 years. I'm also very well acquainted with melodic and progressive rock music and love funk, popular dance music, EDM, R&B and fusion grooves as well. I'm a huge fan of 80's style music and heavily influenced by John Farriss from INXS, Christian Eigner from Depeche Mode, Stewart Copeland from the Police and Neil Peart from Rush. In addition to a large acoustic kit with internal mics and triggers, I have lots of acoustic and electronic percussion. LP congas, bongos and djembes. I have set of Roland TD-30 electronic drums, Roland HandSonic, Yamaha DTX 12, and play an electronic instrument called a ZENDRUM which is a guitar body styled electronic trigger pad instrument for percussion, drums, sound fx etc. I am very familiar playing along backing tracks and click tracks as well. I was in an all original 80's band for many years and have dozens of originals! I also have a rehearsal and recording studio in the basement of my S.E. Fort Collins home or can bring equipment to your space? For more information and availability, Call 970.218.8300.
