Default Re: favorite local drummer?

Great topic. I love this older guy, Mark Groom. Plays for Jimmy Beaumont & The Skyliners, a local act that made it big in the late 50s/early 60 with "Since I Don't Have You". Mark wasn't their original drummer but he's great nonetheless. A real old school type. Simple 4 piece. Makes his own drums too and released this video years back about getting like 100 sounds out of a cymbal). Nice guy. His wife also sings in the current version of the Skyliners.
