Drummer for life!

I have been playing the drums since i was 9 years old. I took lessons for two years. Then in High School i joined the same band i am in now, Lil Elmo and The Cosmos. We then broke up for 8 years, then got back together in 1984. We have been playing ever since, but......business is very slow and i would appreciate any local fill in gig if possible to fill in my calender.
