Getting ready for more shows upcoming in the next couple of months – we’ll be heading to Lake Tahoe, Dallas-area of Texas, and down the road – a show with Dennis DeYoung. I also am working on appearing on another yet-to-be-announced drumming podcast. Good stuff – see you out there soon!
I’m honored to now be part of the Rimshot-locs family! Their RSL-2 locks are awesome – and are now on my Ludwig Supraphonic snare drum. Because I always knock my snare drums out of tune, these help me incredibly. Now, I can actually get a drink of water in between songs – instead of rushing to retuning the drum! Thanks to GT Albright and everyone at Rimshot – Locs!
We had a blast in Orlando – the weather was great and so was the show! Next up, San Antonio’s Oyster Bake on April 20 – sounds like fun to me!
We had a blast on the ’80’s Cruise – the crowds went nuts – we loved playing for you guys and hope to do it again! Next up is Orlando, Florida on April 7. Also, the latest podcast interview I’ve recently done for “Working Drummer” is now on the Podcast page – go check it out, it was a lot of fun and covered topics not discussed in my last interviews. See you soon!
Looking forward to sailing the high seas – we will be playing on March 18 and 19. Gonna be cool!
Hey kids! The first show of 2018 is in the books, and it was cold, but great to be back at it with Lou and the guys. Also, the first 2 podcast interviews for 2018 are in the books, and are now uploaded to the “podcast” page here on this very website. Coming soon will be my appearance on “Working Drummer” podcast, as well as an online written interview in RG Magazine. Upward and onward!
2018 gets moving in full gear this week with Lou Gramm “band” shows starting back up this Saturday in Indio, CA with Foghat at the Riverside County Fair and a couple of podcast appearances! Wednesday February 24 I will have the honor of being the first drummer to appear on the awesome podcast “Amps and Axes”, and then Thursday February 25 I will be appearing on the great “Drummers I Like” podcast. I will post when they become available on ITunes.
Hey guys – check out the updated “Podcasts-Interviews-Reviews” page here on this very website – my brief appearance on Jackie’s Groove/Entertalk Radio at NAMM is up, as well as my recent appearance on the “Kick It With Johnny” drumming podcast. Links to those are on the page. Future upcoming podcast appearances include “Drummers I Like” in February, and a yet-to be scheduled appearance on the “Working Drummer” podcast. See you out there with Lou Gramm!
Hey kids – welcome to 2018! This year should prove to be a great one. Coming up on the horizon are the following events: Thursday January 11th, I’ll be appearing on the revamped drumming podcast “Kick It With Johnny” at 8PM (the link will be up on my social media pages soon). At the end of January, I will be attending NAMM in Anaheim, CA. There, I will be appearing at the Drumtacs booth at 1PM, joining my buddy JC Clifford for fun and excitement! I’m looking forward to checking out all of the new gear and networking with as many people as I can. In February, we start the Lou Gramm “band” gigs back up in Indio, California at the Riverside Country Fair, playing with our buddies in Foghat. Other dates are starting to pop up in 2018 for us as well!
2017 was a great year, and we finished it off in style at the Riptide Festival in Ft. Lauderdale Beach, Florida. We had a great band this year featuring Lou, Myself, Michael Staertow, Jeff Jacobs (new to the band this year), Scott Gilman, and AD Zimmer. Looking forward to see as many people as possible in 2018!
