ABOUT

After a long hiatus for all musicians due to COVID, some opportunities are beginning to surface. I'm looking for musicians with open minds to play out of their comfort zone to a degree and shake a few dance floors up in the area. I am a 60's rocker at my core but now want to explore other decades and styles. Contact me if you feel this is something you might be interested in. By the way; I am NOT talking about going on the road and touring. This is strictly a local endeavour I hope can be of some help in fundraising for virtually any worthy cause.

EQUIPMENT

A small PA. Not really suited for 'all-miked' large situations, but good for a small hall or club. I have a set of electronic drums, a pair of large congas and a pair of bongos, as well as an aray of hand percussion instruments. I also have a Korg keyboard.
My main instrument was for years the drums, and I always sang while playing. But now due to arthritis, I cannot play more than about 10 minutes. So I need a good drummer. I have been doing single and 2 person shows for about 25 years now. But I would really like to work with live musicians again.
