ABOUT

4 yrs High School Music Program
8 yrs Drum & Bugle Corps including 2 yrs with World Champion Blue Devils Drum Line
2 yrs Humber College music majoring in jazz drumming
Many various Top 40/Classic Rock cover bands
Several original bands incorporating power pop, classic rock, prog rock, jazz
Several country bands in Atlanta including a house gig at Tootsie's World Famous Orchid Lounge in Nashville
Very familiar with electronics & MIDI
Sequencing software
Sing lead and backup - midrange and high falsetto
Currently looking for either an excellent corporate/wedding/event cover project that plays often and pays well, or an excellent original project that is ready to do great things. Either project needs to have excellent players, excellent vocals, and great people with a sense of humour, a sense of business, a sense of style, and a sense of class. I prefer bands with keyboards but for an excellent project with excellent players and great people I could let that slide.
