ABOUT

Do you have a gig coming up and need a drummer? Is your regular drummer not able to play your next gig? Call me! I'm a seasoned professional with a positive attitude and good work ethic. I know how to groove and have solid time. Very comfortable playing with a click and have an ear for most styles of music. I've played drums for well over 30 years in all kinds of different bands and musical situations. I am a music lover and already know hundreds of popular songs in many genres, and can learn your material very quickly! Because I grew up playing drums in church, I even know how to play with dynamics and more importantly know how to control my stage volume and play quietly if called to do so. How many drummers do you know who can do that? I was part of a successful cover band which did hundreds of corporate and wedding gigs over 8 years before we decided to move in different directions. Now playing regularly with various bands, plus I also teach drum lessons. And yes, I still volunteer my playing at church!

By day, I'm a working IT professional, so I'm looking for fill-in opportunities with weekend gigging bands, or to do recording session work. For me its just about playing with great musicians interested in making great music and having fun. Making a little money can be nice too.
