Drummer in South Bend, Indiana Seeks Hard Metal/Alternative Band Gig

Meet Matt, Drummer Ready To Tour

Matt is 22 years old and has spent the last 7 years playing drums and alot of different bands. He has played pop punk, old school punk, hard rock, acoustic soft rock, ska, and just plain rock.

Matt is currently playing drums for a band called McSmokerson. Matt thinks that the bands lack of success is in part due to the fact that their melodic punk style is not really the in thing right now.

Matt auditioned for a band called Brazil a couple years ago, www.braziltheband.com , but had to turn down the offer due to some personal things going on in his life and now they just signed to a major label.

Matt is a serious drummer and want to find a national band on at least a small label that is able to tour full time most of the year. Matt was pleased to find this blog and says:
I spend alot of time online looking but I find it really hard to find out that the good bands even need drummers because they dont let that news out very much.
Listen to Matt's band's songs on www.myspace.com/mcsmokerson.

Contact Matt via email at punkdrummer84@yahoo.com.

Yo Kiddies! I'm Back!

It's been a while. I've taken a bit of a hiatus while completing work on a big project with my paying gig. I recently had a speaking gig at a convention in Keystone Colorado... I must say, beautiful. I think I have the Rocky Mountain High now.

I'm on vacation this week and happy as can be to be back to blogging. It has been a little rough around here lately with a death in the family, my apartment complex had an amber alert issued for a little girl who is still missing and my husband lost his job! But, I'm hanging in there and things are beginning to get back to normal.

In one of my other lives, I recently interviewed a lady running for governor of the state of Tennessee. I also interviewed Howie of Punkenstein and more recently rebranded as American Gorillas. Howie was formerly known as Howie Zao and has lived in and performed in Hollywood, CA and New York, NY. Listen to the podcast here.

Brings me to another topic...
This blog is for bands and drummers all over the US but, since I'm in Tennessee, if you are in Tennessee and want to be interviewed, let me know.

Anyhow, come the next few days, I've had many a reader email me with some good information. Just wanted to let you know that I'm still alive and am happy to get my life back.
