ABOUT

Experienced, professional drummer looking for an established band.

Let's chat if you're looking for a drummer, a short-term drummer for a project, a session drummer for studio recording, or a pinch-hitting drummer for a last-minute gig.

I'm versatile with a vast repertoire. I've played almost every major rock hit from the 70s to today. My preferences are classic rock, country music, pop-punk, hard rock, alternative, grunge, top-40 pop, blues, and R&B.

I have many album recordings under my belt and performed in hundreds of gigs from small venues to large festivals in front of as many as 10,000+ people.

I've played in many tribute and cover bands. Some of these include:

* Led Zeppelin
* The Who
* Black Sabbath
* Dio
* KISS
* Bon Jovi
* Pearl Jam
* Ghost
* Blue Rodeo
* The Eagles
* AC/DC
* George Strait
* Green Day
* Pink
* Metallica

And many more.

I've also played in themed shows, including Broadway Musicals, Crooners (Rat Pack and Smooth Jazz), New Wave (Synth Pop and Goth), Disco, and others.
