“My setup is pretty simple. I get to play a wonderful DW kit that fans of Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials 1 DVD might recognize. The left hand snare is a DW 12” Popcorn Maple drum. The second bass drum pedal is the kick trigger for the electronics setup. And the cymbals are a pair of 14” Paiste Dark Energy Hats, 16” and 17” Paiste Dark Energy Crashes, and a Zildjian K Custom 20” Dark Ride.

Time is of the essence (isn't that our jobs), so The Miller Machine is absolutely required for this show due to some instant switches. I had the copyist add "On Miller Machine" to the updated copies of the score!”

"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."
"If you are passionate, driven, feel you have a calling, a burning desire to play, practice, perform, and record music that you can share with the world, then choosing to be a professional musician here will make you a fulfilled and happy person. You’ll meet the most amazing people on stage, in the rehearsal room and in the audience."
