Machine is a drum teacher, but he is also a courteous and professional drummer-for-hire...My bands "Snowcats" and "Alex Edwards Band" have requested his playing skills many times and each performance makes us remember that he has been teaching for over 30 years. He consistently lifts our sound into the heights of excellence – a great drummer alone really does do that. He fulfils rock's power requirements, is technically on point and he always interprets the song in an evocative way. We owe him mountains of gratitude for the part he has played in some of our most fondly-recalled shows. Great guy, great drummer!
