Wow! 2013 was quite the year! I certainly cut back on gigging and recording this year with my focus being pointed to making Drum & Drummer School of Percussion the best it can be and even more importantly getting ready to become a father! That happened in late August when Kaylin Juliana Truelove was born and has had my heart ever since. Here she is at about 3 months old helping Daddy get his groove on. Oh, but I did just add a few shows to the calendar
The other thing that has been keeping me busy is all of the preparation I have been doing a lot to get ready to launch my new SOLO PROJECT! Yes that's right a solo project as a drummer. But not just a drummer. As some of you may already know, I have also been a DJ for a few decades now. I have mostly dj'd weddings and school dances, parties etc. I have finally figured out away to bring my decades of DJ experience and decades of drumming experience into one unique live presentation/DANCE PARTY! It is called DJ DRUM and it is going to be Cray Cray! For more info, check out my FB page for DJ Drum
KEEP ON THE LOOK OUT FOR MY INAUGURAL PERFORMANCE/VIDEO SHOOT IN THE COMING MONTHS & DON'T FORGET TO LIKE THE FB PAGE SO YOU CAN GET ON THE INVITE LIST!
