Band to Join.

ABOUT

I've been a hired drummer or band member for several concerts and tours from coast-to-coast. I play different styles of music but I'm primarily a rock/ classic rock drummer.

Bands and artists I’m influenced by are mostly from the 1970s: Aerosmith, Rush, Heart, Zeppelin, Priest ... plus classic radio/ pop rock from Bowie to Paul Simon, The Police, Stones, Beatles, Steely Dan, Toto, The Cars and others.

For whatever past gigs are worth, I’ve played smaller stadiums, several universities, large outdoor festival incl Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose, Alberta (BVJ co-headliner in the Beer Gardens for 2 consecutive years), Seafood Fest in Charlottetown, PEI, Shellfish Festival with a Celtic pop band .... smaller festivals such as Bedford Days, DND, and others. I’ve played from Grand Falls-Windsor, NFLD Splash Festival to theatres and night clubs in Victoria, BC with various rock, hard rock, tribute bands and Celtic bands.

Looking for an experienced band or a recording artist to back. Interested in showcase gigs, events, recording, etc. I'm not really looking for a Top 40 or other regular local bar scene cover band.

An interesting project playing good original rock material or challenging but fun music (jazz, prog rock, etc) are of interest.
