A memorable experience was playing Carnegie Hall. What an amazing venue! The history of past performers is staggering.
I am influenced by a wide variety of drummers in all styles of music. I feel that everyone has their own unique voice on the drums and it can influence my playing differently. I like almost every kind of music so I try to be open minded.
I have been playing Vic Firth my entire professional career. Vic’s products help me perform to the best of my ability. We are a team!
