“It is an honor for me to help my Filipino sisters and brothers in this time of extreme need.  Although no one in my family was affected by the tropical hurricane, my heart goes out to the thousands of families who have lost loved ones and homes.”

-Gordon Roqué

Nashville-based artist and performer Gordon Roque is currently seeking a drummer to join his band as he prepares to record and promote his brand new, forthcoming, full-length album to be released later this year.

Qualities desired include a strong background in jazz and the versatility to perform a variety of styles (Latin, big band, funk, pop, classical, etc.)  Musicians who have large egos and a lack of humility and respect towards the creative process need not apply.

An easy-going demeanor and a strong work ethic will be wholeheartedly appreciated.When chosen, this drummer will be actively involved in the arrangement of all the new songs in Roque’s upcoming LP,  as well as performing on the recordings and playing in shows.  Roqué hopes to have a  fully collaborative and creative partnership with this drummer.

Please send all serious inquiries via e-mail at gordon(at)gordonroque(dot)com.
