Best Of Dallas

Seven of the Best Drummers in DFW


I've spent many years behind a drum set. When I go to shows, I almost always catch myself peering at the drummer, no matter how engaging or magnetic the rest of the band is. I've come to admire the drumming of several local drummers from whom I've nicked many riffs and tricks.

The following is a list -- in alphabetical order -- of seven of the best drummers in town. Each plays with confidence, steering the performances of the bands they play in, and using their distinctive voices every time they pick up a drumstick.
