My oldest brother is a Bass player in Sacramento and my younger brother is a drummer working in New York. I’m a Pocket Drummer and proud of it. I consider pocket drumming a forgotten art. I’ve been playing for over 30 years. I also sing lead and back up vocals. I perform locally here in Southern California and wherever the gig is. I’m available for rehearsals and tours. I consider All shows and performances important weather great or small. I do my homework and come to rehearsals prepared. I take what I do very seriously but at the same time have fun. Please contact me only if your serious and professional.
