Update March 2020

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.

Please check out some of the videos of my old band with me in action.

i.g.chalmers at g mail dot com

(as Bandmix won't allow you to advertise an email address Just change the at to @ and dot to . and remove the spaces).
------------------

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.
