I play the cajon, a great little instrument that packs all the groove and punch of a drum kit into your unplugged and acoustic gigs without any of the space requirements. I've been playing this and various other percussive things for about 15 years and, being new to North London, am looking for a band to join or other musicians to jam and gig with. I don't necessarily want to play professionally but do consider myself a serious amateur, ideally looking to play great music with similarly committed people.
