Band to Join.

ABOUT

Very experience gig-hardened drummer seeking rock covers band round the Stoke/Cheshire area (would be open to modern jazz group also).

Have been playing for over 20 years in jazz, rock, blues and Motown. Was recently in 2 bands based in Stoke/North Staffordshire area, first band played covers and the second wrote own material (including studio recordings) covering over 5 years with both. Currently playing in Motown/Soul band but have enough time to join a second covers band playing rock/alternative rock.

Please see links and photos below of previous work; Keep Rockin!! :)
