"I'm currently playing drums on the 2nd National Tour of Sara Bareilles' Tony Award Nominated musical, Waitress. It's been really great getting to tour with such a compact setup. I try to emulate Sara's great drummers, and more importantly, the original Broadway drummer Rich Mercurio as best I can, and the music doesn't call for anything much bigger than the kit I'm using.

While having all the cymbals and drums to hit in a 360 setup is always fun, it's been an awesome experience to try to get the most out of this smaller setup. Not to mention, it's also much easier to tour around!

On the Roland SPD and Trigger Pad, I'm mostly doing sound effects as well as a few drum loops. We also run some of the click for the show off the SPD, some of which is triggered by me, and some of which is triggered from a foot pedal by the Musical Director.

Since the band is visible onstage for the all of the scenes that take place in the diner, we are given a prop coffee mug and encouraged to chat with each other and appear like regular diner patrons during the time that we are not playing. The poppy flower is used for a dream sequence, where the band does some basic choreography along with the ensemble, such as snapping, tapping our feet, and sniffing the fake poppy. Being on stage has definitely been a change of pace, since I'm used to playing in a pit or at least offstage for shows. I find that you have to stay much more engaged, and I feel super aware of all of my movements, especially when I'm not playing!"

"After a week or two of rehearsals there is usually a performance or two of the show for an invited audience. Sometimes these performances can be intense if there are important people in the room, or if certain sections of the show feel under prepared. This is why it’s so important to know the score and script very well."

"The unique part of Groundhog Day was that the drummer had to play on stage, in a groundhog costume, wearing a giant groundhog head. Since I could barely see out of the head, it was impossible to read a chart (and there wasn’t a music stand), so it had to be memorized."

"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."
