Experienced drummer looking to join a working cover band in the St. Louis Metro area.
I have all the gear and tools necessary to make it happen. I also have practice space available with a PA. Interested in 3-8 cash paying weekend gigs per month. Also available for fill in work.
Ideal situation would be an established working cover band with a robust set list full of songs that people know and love to dance to.
I am a seasoned drummer with vocal ability. I am well versed in most musical genres including Rock, Pop, Dance, Reggae, Blues, Country, Hip hop, Classic Rock, etc. I know and have played at least 70% of most working cover band set lists and I could learn the rest quickly to be ready for the gig.
I just ended a 3 year run with Next Best Thing Band. Sadly, the band dissolved due to relocation, jobs, family, etc. During our 3 years together we crushed goals while having a blast. I'm not looking to start that band over but I am interested in a project that is organic and enjoyable.
I take my craft seriously but I don't take myself too seriously. One of the skills I bring to the table is the ability to read a crowd and I can help create a set list that consistently builds crowd energy. Or I can just shut the f*ck up and sit back and play the drums. My ultimate goal is to help round out a band so that the band is progressing consistently and everyone is having fun.
