Hey now everyone,
For over 15yrs I've been a gigging/session drummer from central Massachusetts who is fortunate to play in all kinds of bands and with all kinds of great musicians in the central and western portions of Mass. I play with bands/projects that range from jazz, organ funk, hyper-eclectic blues-funk-rock to bands with Dead heavy set list. I even have a couple GD/Jerry based projects in the works for next year! If you're from or ever around these areas of Mass, let me know or check out my (shameless plug) facebook page as I usually post any gigs I'm doing there. https://www.facebook.com/Drumma75
And if you or someone you know is a pro/semi-pro level player looking for a drummer in the aforementioned locations, let me know! Especially if it's Dead related ;)
Thanks for your time!
I'm an old deadhead, so glad I made it! I've been "out of touch" for a few years but so glad to be back. I'm a musician who plays a very unusual instrument, a "Prizim" which is a glorified Autoharp. 37 strings. I have just uploaded a bunch o dead tunes, including Terrapin, Eyes, Birdsong and some others. Bluesy Black Peter.
take a look, enjoy. Website is coming in a few weeks.
this is my first original song solo (instruments;l), would love to play in a band but for now solo is better than nothing!
Let me know what you think!
Better late than never...Been writing songs since the early seventies, and just put out a CD "One Long Skid vol.1" I finally had time to go back to the station and pick up a few of my cars that I left off years ago! Hope some folks like it, and pass the word. A little reckoning maybe...
Keep on Skidin'
I played in a band called Single Shipper for four months. We played pop-punk/ grunge (kind of different for these forums i know lol) we didnt play any shows because of money and travel problems. But we split cos' my drummer was heavily envolving himself around drinking and pot smokeing which was affecting his playing and concentration. But also cos'..... he wanted to play speed metal. A: Not really too much into that & B: I'm not that and what I mean by "that skilled" I mean "THAT SKILLED" enough to play that kind of music haha. I'm mostly good at three/four chord progressions, covers (Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, Social Distortion, Sublime etc...) But before that and to this day I'm a solo artist and would rather prefer that over being in a band :)
It's worth checking out the Next Generation rocking Jerry's world
I am in a band called Positive Mental Trip but this weekend, Saturday May 21st, 2011, I am playing at my festival, Positive Mental Trip Festival in Northville, NY with Tom Constanten in his band "In the Dark". A big deal for me and will be up on two songs with them. Anyone interested check out my site- www.positivementaltrip.net . 3 days of camping and music in the Adirondack mountains of New York.
