My previous Blues, Soul & Rock n' Roll covers band have just called it time after many years and I'm back on the market and looking for the next project.

I'm Iain and I'm a drummer looking for a band.
Any style of music considered, originals or covers.
I have played in Scottish Traditional bands, pop covers bands, classic rock bands and for the last 6 years a fabulous Blues, soul & Rock n' Roll covers band. I have a steady non flashy style. I can pick up most parts very quickly. I have a very wide taste in music and fully supportive of anything as long as it can be played live by folk that are having fun.
I am 49 and not looking to join a bunch of 16 year olds out to conquer the world, but a group of like minded individuals looking to have fun (Mid Life Crisis but can't afford a Porche).
I ‘m based in the Duloch area of Dunfermline, I have my own transport and Pro gear (see below).
I can commit to one night a week for a practice (more if required before a gig) and gigging when required. Looking to gig 2 or 3 times a month as I'm not looking for a second job, it's about fun.
