I have to give some credit to a one Ron Cortese for pretty much telling me “hey, you should get a drumset because you’re our new drummer”, way back as Juniors in High School. I give him some credit for opening some doors to playing music – i had always been a music freak, totally getting into whatever music i was listening to – but now i got to play it.

And for the past 8 years i have been drumming and helping write w/ Rotary Downs. and it’s been a blast. For a while i kept the door closed since i didnt’ want to overwork myself w/ new music projects. But i think that’s over. I have since started playing with Sunrise:Sunset:. and next week i am doing a one-off gig w/ the talented Ratty Scurvics at One Eyed Jacks. Hope to see you out there…
