Our logo. Pretty, eh?

Rick is the final original member and rounds out the group. He’s the drive behind the band’s awesome sound. Always quick with a joke in rehearsal, he keeps things light-hearted wherever the band goes. There’s not a better drummer our there anywhere. Rick lets his presence be known from the very start of the show and never lets up until the final chord.

Rick owns quite a collections of drums and cymbals (some with custom-painted heads):
