The Hands of Time Band has Retired

Saturday night May 20, 2017 after a perfect road trip and performance for the Gainesville High School Class of 1967 50th Year Reunion at Scott's Downtown in Gainesville, I retired The Hands of Time Band, the band name and my set drums. The old back and legs have had enough. The seven years together, 136 gigs has been an awesome and rewarding experience!

I would like to thank the people that made this dream come true.

My wife Laura and my family for their support and putting up with the absence from home and late nights getting home, I haven't been home for New Years Eve in nine years.

My mother Patricia Miles and father Larry Freeman Sr for supporting me with drums growing up and coming to our shows.
