Chris Holland

Drums / Vocals

 

Equipment: 8 piece Tama Star Classic Performer drum kit, Indigo Blue. All Ziljian Cymbals with a sweet 20” Custom A Ping Ride. Pro Mark 747 wood tip sticks. In ear monitor system with head worn vocal mic.

 

Hometown: Jefferson, Maryland

 

Musical Influences: Too many too list but heavily influenced by RUSH. Also YES, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen (Pre-Sammy) and Billy Joel (Pre-Christie) and all the classics. Although I listen to just about anything I enjoy the powerful groups like Boston, Journey, Aerosmith, ACDC, Queen, Pearl Jam, and Foo Fighters. I appreciate music with intricate rhythms and drum lines and I love the big fills. I enjoy Jazz, R & B, Ska and Progressive and try to incorporate things I hear into the music that we play.

 

First album purchased: RUSH, All The Worlds A Stage. I was about 12 or 13 years old. Once I heard Neil Peart’s Working Man Drum Solo it was all over. I bought it at Joe’s Record Paradise in Takoma Park, MD. If anyone remembers the DC music scene 25 years ago Joe’s Record Paradise was the home of Root Boy Slim. He had a group called the Sex Change Band and old Root Boy was a piece of work.

 

Favorite song: Hard to say. RUSH La Villa Strangiato would have to be near the top.

 

Musical goals: Always keep the crowd wanting more.
