ABOUT

I play traditional Afro Cuban rhythms on the Conga drums. I also play Cajon, Djembe, some bongo rhythms, bell, shaker. I have mostly played with popular music that allows room for the conga drums. Everything from full on bands to singer songwriters with guitar. I have enjoyed applying the rhythms I have learned to pop, rock, folk,Celtic,Country,Reggae and open to more genres. I can also sing (Tenor) back up and play and working on singing on lead on some songs.
