My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... I started playing professionally when I was 17 yrs old. I love making music, you're kind of a " jazzy " drummer..I've heard more times than I can count. I have my own band, I've been a band leader more often than not as I usually have my own band. I'm working on a new jam band in Colorado, 4D Travelers, ...so now I'm playing Jazz Fusion - Grooves on the Festival circuit in the West. I recently moved close enough to Nashville to call it Nashville! Drop me a line! :o)
