Drums for 4 years

Both of my brothers played guitar, so I wanted to play an instrument too. But I didn't want to be like them so I started playing drums. Jacob Phlanser, who at the time was the drummer for my brothers band, taught me how to play drums. I started my first band with a few friends that knew how to play. It was me on drums, Chadd Sollenberger on rhythm guitar, Nick Dewalt on lead guitar, and Ashton Hackney on bass. We SUCKED. Then I left that band, to play with My brother Ben and Malachi McDuffurd in Long Ears. And when that fell apart and Me and Nick Dewalt and Jeremy Caudill started a band called Janie and The One Eyed Gypsy.Then Eventually Nick and I were offered positions in a band called Mango Tango. In the band was Ben Compston, on lead guitar, Nick Dewalt and rhythm guitar, Justin Mosteller on bass, and me on drums. Then things happened and now it's just Ben on guitar, Nick on funky ass bass, and me on drums.
