Olney, Illinois USA
band: blues rock artist Ol’ Ry
STICK SIZE: 5a
Hi there, I’ve been drumming for 30 years strong now. I am a self taught percussionist who through relentless practice earned his way to college with a percussion scholarship at an early age. I’ve played over a thousand music festivals and shows in the area playing with multiple bands and acts over the years. I am a very diverse drummer as I have been in Rock bands, Cover bands, Blues, Punk, Metal, Funk, and Folk bands over the years. I performed at Moccasin Creek Music Festival over the summer playing on the same bill as reputable artist Chicago Farmer.
I am currently endorsed by Louson Drums and I just recently became an endorsee for the Collision Drumsticks team. My two bands that I currently drum for are Ol’ Ry, and Jess and the Hired Hands out of Olney, Illinois. Both bands offer a unique sound with incredible songwriters and are both actively recording their debut albums for a 2023 release.
Press quotes & testimonials
“His entrancing behind the kit showmanship is mesmerizing with his quick hands and rock solid rhythms” Quote from an anonymous journalist that wrote an article on my bands performance one time.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I play collision drumsticks size 5As. My favorite thing about the collision brand is just how much they actually care about their artists and their products and that their customer service is also top notch! I fully recommend Collision Drumsticks simply because they feel great in my hands and they cause minimal fatigue in my wrists after a night of playing with them. They are solid sticks and are without a doubt built to take a beating.
