Zafer & Nick’s Bio
We still need to write up Troy’s but here’s these two:
I first started drumming on my mother’s walls when I was 4 and drumset was an inevitable out growth. Drums are an exciting instrument. Even with a country back beat, the snare is the kick in your step. On top of that, playing Rock & Roll, I’m playing a genre that’s intrinsically exciting. I like to be a grooving fire cracker. Major influences include Stewart Copeland (The Police), Clyde Stubblefield (James Brown), John Bonham, and Dave Grohl. Bands I’ve Played In: Jojokrako, Stealing Gin, Cerebus, Tin Moth, Hollis & The Mighty McGreggors, The Tease and The Terror, I Love My Dead Gay Son (The Musical), and nanoSMASH. I nearly died when I was 7 from chlorine inhalation, I failed 4th grade english, and have a BA in Philosophy.
