ABOUT

Hey Folks,

Here's the scoop -- I'm a 34 y/o experienced drummer with 20+ years of off and on playing looking for a cover band. Up until last year I was in a very busy cover band that played 80-100 shows/year. The other 'bys decided to focus on their families, which is understandable since we were travelling every weekend. So we've put things on hold for now and that leaves me looking for a new group!

If you're looking for someone with a sense of humour, great stage presence and a solid groove...I'd love to hear from you!

I'm open to starting something new, but would prefer an established group. References available if needed.

Influences

All over the place, from funk to metal to jazz to country and classic rock. Over the years I've played in punk bands and prog rock at the same time then moving on to blue -- so it's all over the place.

As of the last 10 years or so, I've mostly been into COVER bands. That's currently what I'm looking for. Nothing fancy, just a cover band that plays good 'ol tunes that people love to hear and DANCE to. That means rock from the 60s-present, country, current hits and yeah...even some 90's boy band stuff!
Note: While Rush is fun to play...it's not something I'd consider for a proper cover band. :)
