We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"I play Gretsch because there’s nothing else out there that feels as good or sounds as good as a Gretsch kit. I’m consistently blown away every time I play or hear Gretsch Drums. They are incredibly versatile and beautiful instruments and I can fully rely on any Gretsch kit to get the job done.”"

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Stay the course. Don’t give up on the dream…Take every opportunity to play and treat every gig as if it’s the most important performance of your career. Reputation is everything, keep a good attitude and be a good person. Try and surround yourself with musicians who are wiser and better than you are and learn as much as you can. Always be willing to LISTEN.”"
