"I'm using a Tama Starclassic B/B Kit (Birch/Bubinga Hybrid Shell) with Remo Ambassador heads. I'm using a Roland Octapad SPD-30 for the timbales, sandpaper blocks, and the one concert bass drum hit.

I have a couple of instruments that are from smaller businesses that are putting out incredible products: JCR Percussion's timbale cowbell, and a 20" Matt Bettis Ride.

The Miller Machine got a lot of attention in rehearsals. It is so helpful during some of the faster accessory sections."

Jordan Holley's setup for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Cocoa Village Playhouse in Melbourne, Florida.

"Conducting a National Tour is incredibly challenging, but so rewarding. Stepping on to the podium with a new orchestra every few weeks really keeps you on your toes. Every player responds differently so you are constantly adjusting to get the desired result. I would compare it to playing a multi-percussion piece where the instruments are constantly moving."
"After a grueling four years at SUNY I still had one theory class left to finish. I was really depressed. A classmate of mine recommended me for a tour of a Broadway show. This completely changed the course of my life."
"When I first got the call to start working on Ain’t Too Proud - The Life And Times Of The Temptations, I was curious about which era the show was going to focus on. Their career began in the early 1960’s and they’re still releasing albums today."

"The main challenge that I found with this show was the very quick instrument and stick changes. Having a good pair of swizzle sticks is necessary to go from tambourine to timpani and sometimes rolls on the concert bass drum."
"The real impetus of this book is the timpani. It is definitely the driving force for the percussion inBack to the Future and it requires a big articulate sound and once again Yamaha with the Evans Orchestral White Opaque Heads just deliver."
