Local Las Vegas Musician

I'm a reliable band mate with a laid-back personality. I do my homework, and expect the same of the players I work with. I have a solid groove, chops and great dynamics. My drumming is versatile; largely Classic Rock & Jamband experience, sprinkled with Reggae, Funk, Soul, Latin Jazz and other flavors. I am hungry for gigs, and ready to do the work with the right band! The pandemic blew up my previous gig flow, so I am hoping to find working band ASAP. I also love to record.


Musical Influences & Inspiration

My playing is akin to that of Dennis Chambers (Parliament, Santana, Steely Dan), or Carter Beauford (Dave Matthews Band)... with a dash of Bonham (Zeppelin) and Stanton Moore (Galactic) thrown in for good measure. Which is to say funky, groove-oriented, intricate, powerful and *solid*.
