I am an extremely keen musician with a serious passion for Jazz, Funk and the Westcoast session scene of the 75-85 era. What really floats my boat, is tasteful and articulated grooves, such as these...




I have been playing drums since the age of 14. Was in a band for a couple of years at the age of 18, gigged a couple of times, and since then have only practiced at home. I can't read (music)((yet!)), but am learning.

Would love to meet other keen musicians with a view to forming a decent tight funk function band on a regular basis!
