HI, My name is Patrick Emerick and I’m from Pittsburgh pa. Im 26 years old and I’ve been playing drums for 12 years. I drum for the groups tempered and the quiet loud. Since a little before high-school. I’ve always had a passion for drums. I was very fortunate because my school had a lot of options for music so naturally my passion for drums was able to bloom. I really dove in and eventually joined the drum line, percussion ensemble, African ensemble, Brazilian ensemble. And we even had a drum set ensemble. I performed at a dueling piano bar on weekends for a while, I’ve played 100s of shows and I was a bass drummer for the official Pittsburgh steelers drum line.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I use the 5A’s and 5AR’s I have a very aggressive playing style most of the time so Collision drumsticks are great. They have a natural wood feel that really connects with your hand. With all the rimshots I do. I typically go through sticks pretty fast and these sticks can take the beating and still live to see another session. But just as important as the sticks, Collision has a great community. We are all connected through various groups within Collision. This makes it so effortless to share, collaborate, talk and relate about music with other drummers in this family.
