SEEKINGBand to Join.
Experienced drummer and backing vocalist. Occasional lead vocals if needed.
Looking for players/bands that are solid and are focused on gigging regularly. 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. 90's rock/alt would also be intriguing. I'm used to playing a wide range.
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

- Background Singer:
Sonor maple kit on a rack system. Can scale size to whatever is needed. (Anywhere from 4 piece to Terry Bozzio lol)
Typically play 6 piece (2 up 2 down) when stage space permits. Footprint is generally 6' x 5'.
SPD-SX to trigger samples and/or full backing tracks. Also used as a click typically. Also electronic trigger for snare and external trigger bar if necessary.
I generally run my own in-ear system with a mini mixer to combine the monitor out from the board with the click/sub out from the SPD-SX.
SM58 and stand for vocals.
