Former professional drummer craves new creative contacts. Life is meaningless without live expression.
My playing is solid, powerful, punchy, dynamic, tasteful ...deep grooves, lots of spaces.
No personality/ego trips. Laid back and reliable.
Looking to jam/perform with competent players who can improvise and play what they feel in the PRESENT moment... not just copy a recording of someone else's playing done in the PAST.
Check out my influences. If we're on the same page... let's get started.
