What to Expect
I always bring a professional attitude into all aspects of playing drums. So I show up on time prepared with the material given to me.
I can read music and prepare my own charts. I listen to what the band leader or whoever is leading the song needs and follow on-stage cues accordingly. I am flexible with last minute changes to music.
To give a general summary, whatever is asked of me I always try my best and deliver a confident expectation that what I give will be satisfactory to the one that asked.
I've been playing drums for 12 years now. I started in Church and have been playing Live House of Worship music ever since. In High School I took Jazz Band and that fueled my passion to learn more about music and performance on the drum set.
Some of my influences include drummers Jeff Porcaro, John JR Robinson, Tommy Igoe, and John Bonham. Through listening to these players and the recordings they've done, it has helped me to develop a style of playing that invites other musicians to play and create with me.
My influences from different bands include Bethel, Hillsong, Miles Davis, Led Zeppelin, Toto and many others.
It has been my dream to make a living from playing drums and through this site I hope to come closer to this goal.
