Are you looking for a fill in drummer with a Professional Attitude and Approach?

I am a strong believer in playing with style and class, not banging away!    I have various types of experience, including Recording Studio work.     Musical styles include: 

  • Classic and Newer Country

  • Blues

  • Classic Rock


Current Band(s) include:

  • Whiskey Canyon Band (Up-Tempo Country)

  • I am looking to do fill in work on open days and weekends.   So, just call me if you need a fill in Drummer!


The largest influences on my drumming have been: 

  • Gordy Knudtson, whom I am sure you are aware of as the long time drummer for the Steve Miller Band.    Check out Gordy's web site by clicking on his name above.

  • Phil Hey and Jay Epstein two of the most talented Jazz Drummers you will find.

  • Rob Stupka, Doug James and Michael Velasquez also help me a tremendous amount.

A BIG THANKS to each of them!
