Welcome to my website. I'm back! Sorry for the lull, please feel free to browse and check things out. Just returned from playing with old friends Clyde Pound, Doug MacDonald and Les Benedict at the Hot Springs Jazz Festival in Arkansas. Had a great time and Hot Springs is a unique and wonderful place. After the festival I went to Nashville to visit the Pearl Drum Company (check out pic below). Wow, a huge facility with wonderful people and lots of drums. Mahalo to Gene Okamoto for the guided tour and to Mike Farriss, both for their expertise and the "southern hospitality". Looking forward to doing a clinic at Easy Music Center on monday, October 15th, 5 - 6:30 pm. First public clinic in a few years, please come and join us for what should be a fun time. I will be playing my Pearl Reference series drums, also known as my "Iron Man" kit. Thanks for visiting.
