Drums are the most powerful instrument on a stage.
At Antioch, we are power drummers. Our style is more simple than complicated and more authoritative than impressive. We play by the 80/20 rule – 80 percent of sound on drums, 20 percent of sound on cymbals. Our fills are simple and infrequent. What we play complements the other instruments in the band. We are aware of where the song is going so we can lead into each section of the song. We build simply – the bigger we get, the simpler and more open we get.
COMPETENCIES WE’RE LOOKING FOR IN DRUMMERS:
- Ability to play to a click
- Ability to play a song lick for lick
- Eighty percent on drums, twenty percent on cymbals
- Simple fills
- A powerful attack on the drums
