I’d have to credit my mom for getting me interested in music. She had a beautiful soprano voice and I remember singing next to her in church as a little kid. She would harmonize all the time which made me bold to try it too. She insisted that I take piano lessons and then when I wanted to buy my first set of drums she and my dad forwarded me the cash and I paid them back over time. I still sing in the choir at church, and now enjoy the thrill of playing with some top-notch musicians in Sugar Buzz! Like my cousin Step, the former drummer for Sugar Buzz, KISS has always been one of my favorite bands. My first concert was Van Halen at the St. Paul Civic Center (1981 I think?). Some of my favorite drummers are Peter Criss (of course), Stewart Copeland, Carter Beauford, and Neil Peart. I thoroughly enjoy many genres of music especially classic country of late. Buck Owens, Conway Twitty, George Jones and the like (Don’t be hatin’). I’m super blessed to be a part of this group and thankful for your support!
