A veteran of the San Francisco Rock scene in the late 1970's and early 80's, Rory played with a wide variety of bands from punk to polka including many shows at the famed Mabuhay Gardens, the punk palace of the west. He can also be seen with the jazz band "On the Air" and the Roots Rock Trio "The GoldDiggers".
Rory has performed with many local and national jazz musicians including Howard Alden.
His drum arsenal includes modern and vintage drums and cymbals. When it comes to his set up, like his drumming...less is more. "I don't like a lot of drums, cymbals or fills on stage. I do like to roll the rock, and make it swing"
