Hey guys, I have enjoyed drumming since I was around 5 years of age if I recall correctly, I was introduced to drumming by my father Pat Geer on his SONOR trap set that he used with his band the Malibu’s in high school. I have recently improved my home drum studio with better mic preamps and cables and converted to a pc based recording system from a Roland studio in a box. I have done various recordings in the past both in a physical studio with a band or in my home studio as part of a collaboration project via the web. I thoroughly enjoy playing the drums and especially creating fresh tracks for music in the Progressive Rock genre. I have above average skills on the kit, can keep a solid tempo and can balance rhythm with unique accent effects and fills. I approach the drumset as a complete musical instrument in the purest sense.
“I consider acoustic drumming a form of art and extension of myself, much like an airbrush. I enjoy the technical aspects of drumming and recording of auditory canvases of rhythm. I don’t view it as a competition with others as I play for enjoyment and the sharing of a gift from God.”

“If you’ve got a problem, take it out on a drum.”
“I like to be one of those drummers who actually add to the music, not one of those guys who sit in a room 24/7 trying to outwit or outplay another drummer.”
