Drumming is an art form that really has the potential to bring any piece of music to life, regardless of genre. My name is Andrew, and I could help this be the case for your next song, recording, or performance. I am a drummer for hire looking for work of any kind and of any genre. Here is a little bit about me and my experience in the music scene: For many years, I had the opportunity to drum for local metal band Tomorrow Brings New Blood, and had the privilege of opening for many acclaimed metal bands. The most notable among these bands included Gwar, Soilwork, Soulfly, American Head Charge, Battlecross, and Corrosion of Conformity. My performance experience includes many well known venues as well, including The Skyway Theater (Studios A and B), the Amsterdam Bar and Hall, and 7th Street Entry, along with many bars and local venues in Minnesota and the surrounding states. I also believe that showmanship plays a massive role in putting on a good live performance, and I definitely know when to have a laid-back, “go with the flow” vibe, and when it is appropriate to let loose and rock out!
While I do have a passion for heavy music, I am well versed in a healthy variety of genres, having performed pieces ranging from Dream Theater’s “Under a Glass Moon” and “Metropolis 1: The Miracle and the Sleeper”, to Allman Brothers “Whipping Post”, to Eric Whitacre’s “Ghost Train”. I played for four years in the University of St. Thomas Symphonic Band as first chair percussion, and performed with a jazz quintet at the Christian Brother’s Gala hosted by DeLaSalle High School. I have played in multiple Christian worship bands as well, and have performed live and recorded drum tracks for local musicians and bands such as Derrick Holleman, Keegan White, Tomorrow Brings New Blood, Legends Ghost, and Big Balls: A Celebration of Early AC/DC.
I use Pearl Drums, Sabian Cymbals, and Gibraltar hardware, and have reliable transportation.

I would love to help you take your project to the next level!
