  • Get Ready For The Funk


    Back in high school I played in the band as a percussionist. I also took a jazz class. I’ve always really enjoyed rhythmic structure and playing the drums. So it’s safe to say I like funky beats and music in general. I was inspired by both the Sick Beat and 3’s A Band Assignments, but […]
