Played in bands most of my life starting at early age. My father was a musician back in the 30's and 40's then taught school band for years. I started going on gigs with him when I was very young, getting to sit in on the last set of the night. What a great education for a young musician, I miss those old guys. Did the road for a few years, worked in radio broadcasting, and as touring stage show actor for a while.
Hi I'm Alan Barnes, a 2nd generation old school jazz drummer. The kids call me Prof. Swing.
Meetup group is always fun. Neat to meet other musicians interested in the same type of music. Enjoy sharing the creavtive musical sounds that come from my heart & soul. All Good Things.
