What instrument do you play?

Drum set.

What is your background in music?

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.

How long have you played jazz?

Long time.


Hi I'm Alan Barnes, a 2nd generation old school jazz drummer. The kids call me Prof. Swing.
