About This Drummer

My name is Wally David. I have been playing the drums since I received my first kit in 1976. I’d played in my school music program from the 2nd grade until I started playing the kit. Good by concert bass drum, hello rock and roll!

I played the drums through college and then entered the real world of work, wedding, kids and so on. Fast forward 20 years or so and I’m playing again. As the kids have gotten older, my evenings have freed up significantly. Suddenly, I had time to join a band and get back into it.

It took some time to knock off 20 years of rust, but I’m playing better than I ever did before at the ripe old age of 47. I am the drummer for a blues/southern rock band called Route 49 www.route49rock.com, based in Rochester, NY. We have a simple configuration; guitar, bass and drums, plus a female lead singer. I’m also the webmaster for the band.

My day job is in the IT field, but I have a background in writing and photography. I’m putting them to use again and For Drummers Only 4drummersonly.wordpress.com is the result.
