Dad was a swing / bop / jazz drummer who ran a small jazz club in the early 80's. This exposed me to a lot of musicians and styles along the way. He took me to rehearsals and gigs at an early age. Been playing professionally for nearly 40 years with every kind of band imaginable from Outlaw Country to a Matching Jump-Suited Lounge Act. Heavily influenced by Jazz, Fusion, Funk, Prog Rock and most of all - Good Old Rock and Roll.
Been a singing drummer my whole professional life with a good ear for harmony. Big Boss Man's unofficial vocal arranger!
Major Influences (in no particular order):
The drum kit that everyone asks about...
"The Nesting Penguin" kit
from Whitney Drums
