ABOUT

I am a 52 year old drummer with many years of experience looking for some work with a decent band. I am a very good quality drummer with excellent meter and adaptable to many different styles of music. I have played as a studio musician on a few albums, played on a movie soundtrack and have played most of the big name clubs in Toronto. My playing style is more to the likes of Steve Gadd or Shawn Pelton someone who is comfortable in the pocket however I have the chops to let go when it's called for. I have a really good sense of humor, easy going and dependable. I don't use any drugs but do like to drink socially. Thanks for viewing..drop me a line at robandrews DOT sales AT gmail DOT com

Influences

Honestly too many to mention.... I have hundreds of pieces of vinyl (for the Stern Fans).. everything from Alison Krauss to The Who, because of my age I obviously lean towards classic rock and pop. My playing influences as mentioned are Steve Gadd, Shawn Pelton, Phil Collins, Neil Peart, Sterwart Copeland, Vinnie Colaiuta etc etc....

Drums:

EQUIPMENT

I have 3 different drum kits;
Roland V-Drum full kit - perfect for smaller venues where volume is an issue.
Tama mohagany set - 22" kick, power toms
Gretsch vintage kit(s) - one set with a 20" kick and several toms, one set with a 24" kick (huge sound!)
Cymbals are mostly Zildjian but I also have Sabian & Paiste that I use depending on the sound required.
