Band to Join.

ABOUT

Experienced drummer and backing vocalist. Occasional lead vocals if needed.

Looking for players/bands that are solid and are focused on gigging reasonably regularly - i.e. at least a couple of times a month. While rehearsals are important, playing live is your thrill and you like putting on a show.

While I was once upon a time an 80's hair band/rock guy, I'm now primarily interested in playing danceable, high energy music from 70's funk, 80's pop/alternative (CFNY), 90's and right up until today. I'm used to playing a wide range.

90's grunge/rock/alt would also be fun.

Not into playing "classic rock" or "bar band rock" other than incorporating the odd song into a much wider playlist. It's a tired genre and anyone/everyone can do it. Let's be a bit more creative in our approach and repertoire.

NOTE: I don't typically look or act my age. LOL

EQUIPMENT

Sonor maple kit on a rack system. Can scale size to whatever is needed. Typically play 6 piece (2 up 2 down) when stage space permits. Footprint is generally 6' x 5'.
If needed, I use an SPD-SX to trigger individual samples or additional tracks. Doubles as a click. Also electronic trigger for snare and external trigger bar if necessary.
When available, I can run my own in-ear system with a mini mixer to combine the monitor out from the board with a click.
SM58 and stand for vocals.
