ABOUT

DRUMMER SEEKING MUSICIANS TO FORM A FUN BAND
If you play Bass, Keyboards, Guitar or can sing and you are interested in being in a fun band that plays any, some or all of Funk / R&B / Soul / Blues / Jazz / Latin / Rock, then read on.

I am an easy going guy who is a formally trained good and capable drummer that used to be a great drummer and am getting back into playing after years of too much work and not enough playing music. I am very much enjoying getting my skills back and I want to improve those skills while having fun enjoying a shared passion with some fun and able musicians. Ideally we are 4 or maybe 5 people.

You are easy going and fun, reasonably competent on your instrument / voice, or like me, you got a bit rusty over the years and want to get your chops back. You are interested in doing this for the sake of fun (no head games, no control freaks, no power struggles, no temper tantrums, no disorganized flakes) LOL. FYI: Bonus points if you are available during weekdays (I retired early out of the rat race and thus am available during the day as well as evenings) ;-)

I do not have a premium account here at Bandmix at this time and thus cannot reach out to you. However, feel free to send me a note and I will respond. Thanks.

Influences

I have a very broad set of influences through the Funk, R&B, Soul, Blues, Latin, Rock and Jazz genres and I very much enjoy playing all of those. I prefer music that has a discernible melody and a rhythm LOL. I love to play Jazz, Mo-Town, Classic Blues and Classic Rock, Latin music too; this stuff keeps my toes tapping non-stop. I am not into playing metal, punk, rap. I also don't play any music that does not have a discernible melody and/or rhythm ... never enjoyed that ;-)

If after looking at this profile, you are curious or think maybe I might be what you are looking for, then send me a note. Like I said I am very easy going. We can compare notes and see if it's worth meeting or jamming.

EQUIPMENT

I have both acoustic and electronic excellent drum kits, as well as some recording equipment (M-Audio Fast Track C600 Audio Interface, Shure SM57 mic, Boss stereo effects processor, computer, software, etc.). I have a Yamaha keyboard (PSR-293) as well. I have an ok studio/practice space for an all electronic band (electric guitar, electric bass, electronic keyboards, electronic drums); we use a Roland HS-5 Session Mixer to plug into; we get the full volume music experience while others hear only silence! If we choose to use loud and/or acoustic instruments, no problem, then we simply have to practice elsewhere.
