About Me

I have been playing drums for over 25 years following in my dad's footsteps. I'm originally from Memphis Tn. and have lived in Orlando/Orange City since 2015. I have played many different genres in my 25+ years and have a vast catalogue of music. Currently I play in a Rock band called Sluggo and I also play in a Pink Floyd Led Zeppelin Tribute about once a month. I do still have some times off so check my calendar below for available dates. On top of being a musician, I have an awesome full time day job, so I'm not looking to drum as a primary job. I have a great personality, dont do drugs, drink very little and I have no ego issues. I'm only as good as the guys (or women) I play for. I can play any weekend I'm not gigging with an occasional weeknight gig but I dont want to play any regular weeknight stuff if possible. I like bands that are FUN and ENERGETIC that like variety and LOVE TO PUT ON A GREAT STAGE SHOW. If you do drugs, have drama or you have a bad attitude or ego issue, we wont get along very well at all. I'm not looking for a startup band or an original band. If interested give me a shout and lets set something up.
Thanks, Brian

Genres

Classic Rock
5 stars

I was spoon fed classic rock from a baby, Probably one of my strongest areas next to 80's music. I've got 15+ years experience in this.

Pop/Alternative Rock
5 stars

I am a child of the 80's and 90's. I was in a 80's metal variety cover band for 9 years and have played quite a bit of alternative stuff. All in all I have 16+ years experience in both of these decades.

Country
4 stars

I played random country songs in different variety bands. I don't think I would enjoy playing in an all country situation, I like rock to much. Although it did go over well in memphis in small doses and It's fairly easy to play.

Pop/ Dance
5 stars

I have been in several variety bands and have played pop dance songs by artists like Maroon 5, The Black Keys and Pink.

Classic and New Soul
5 stars

I have also played eveything from KC and the Sunshine Band, Al Green, Prince, Earth Wind and Fire and Bruno Marrs.

Current Gear

Pic of gig Kit 2
Drums

I have 2 kits depending on stage size. Kit 1 is a 5 piece carbon fiber Mapex Pro M series on a gibralter rack. This kit doesnt take up a lot of room because everything is on the rack and not spread out. Kit 2 is a small Tama Star Classic with a small 18" kick drum with 2-3 toms. This one uses stands with legs so, although it's small it can still take up some room.

Pedals

DW 9000 double and single kick pedals.

Cymbals

All Paiste Signature Series Cymbals. 13" hats, 12" splash, 14" full crash, 16" thin crash, 18" precision crash and a 20" power ride.

Drum mics

The mapex kit has Sennheiser e604 series pro drum mics internally mounted in the toms. Sennheiser e604 external snare mic. Shure Beta 52 mounted internally in the kick drum. The Star Classics use Carvin D42's on the toms, a Sennheiser e604 on snare and a Samson QKick on bass drum.

In-Ear Monitors and pre amp

Shure SE215 CLEAR In-Ear Live/Studio Monitor Earbuds. Behringer EURORACK MX 602A Mixer 6 Channel 2 Bus.
