Dying to work on somebody else's music right now, instead of my own. Also dying to spend some time on stage getting people off with music. I'll state that first and foremost: the number one reason I love playing music for people is to give them a wild, good experience. Sweaty if possible. I'm not and have never been in it to meet drinking buddies, nor to get booty, nor with specific fame or fortune in mind.

I've played 2ndary percussionist a few times - always really enjoy following the main drummer, because it lets me stay in the background and not show off too much. Then I can just fill in the beat like choco sauce flooding the crevasses of a cruller. I Can provide references to my following abilities (to actual drummers and to drum machines).

The equipment in the first picture is my current (and newest) setup. Might not look amazing but it is a blast to play on, and sounds good when mic'd. I've played it solo on a street corner downtown, improvised with a drummer on a full set in our studio space, and have played it simultaneously with one hand while I manipulate my drum machine with the other. Depending on how it's played, it can be pretty much like there's another drum set on stage, but it takes up less than half the space.

I am open to a variety of bands and sounds - have experience playing a dozen different styles, both live and recorded. Especially enjoy any music that gets people dancing for an extended period, but I can learn structured songs as well. The number one thing I care about when it comes to playing with your group is, whether or not you have your shit together musically, And, whether you agree that no matter how fuckin crazy you are or your music is, you have to do a good job for people, especially if your're charging them money.

But mostly, this ad is really about You. If this sounds like something your band would dig, email me jack. I will for sure respond to anyone who takes the time. Thanks.
