  • Stick of the Week for 6-30-2011

    Casting Crowns is a great group.  I met them for the first time when they played at a showcase we were playing at in Nashville, TN many years ago.  They instantly became an international sensation in the Contemporary Christian Music world.  They have had several Platinum records and numerous number one hits.

    However, the thing that stands out most about them is their humility.  I got to know the different members backstage at several festivals we were playing together and I have always been impressed with their ability to stay focused on what they were called to do as Christians.  They have never been anything but nice and generous to me.  So when I got the call to make their sticks I was more than excited!  I love knowing I am involved in something that touches the hearts of millions around the world by making the best custom drumstick for them in the world.

    Just having some fun with my fellow drummers and friends. I have played the drums for over 25 years now and think I have earned the right to pick on my choice of instrument. Share these with a drummer that you know or someone that knows a drummer.

  • Now THIS is music!

    I just got to experience hearing one of my favorite bands of all time at a festival I played at this weekend. We were at JFest in TN. Earlier in the afternoon we got to hang with our old friends from the group Salvador and here is a sample of what I got to see and hear. They are truly amazing and something I aspire to.

    Jeff has been playing drums for over 25 years and has been with Big Daddy Weave for over 11 years. when asked what his favorite song to play is, Jeff always says, "Changing Neighborhoods". Inspired by the Dave Matthews Band over 10 years ago, this song features the sax as well as acoustic guitar. Notice the breakdown of Kool and the Gang's Celebration in the middle.

  • Remember the band Petra? Stick of the week 5-17-2011

    Custom drumstick for Petra

    I grew up on their music.  I dreamed of going to a Petra concert, getting an emergency alert from stage that the drummer had sprain his wrist and needed a fill in.  I would then take over as the new drummer and the rest is history.  Well, that didn’t happen, thankfully.  However, I did have the pleasure several years later to play at a festival with these guys and later play at a conference where their lead singer spoke.  I was blown away by how small the Christian Music Industry is. 

    I was equally honored when I got the call to make a custom drumstick for them.  They are doing a reunion tour from 2010 to 2012.  Hopefully you can catch them out on the road sometime soon.  I know I will!

  • Custom Drumstick of the week for 4-28-11

    MercyMe

    Personalized custom drumsticks for MercyMe

    I first met these guys at a show in Greenville, AL right before their song, “I Can Only Imagine” hit big at radio. Our band was honored to get to open for them. They were very gracious to us and allowed us to use their gear. I had never used in-ear monitors before that day. Robby, their drummer was kind enough to let me share his kit as well. A lot has happened since that day and they have gone on to sell millions of records. I am grateful to have partnered with them and wish them the best as they continue to travel the globe spreading the good news.

  • Why Play Custom Stix?

    It amazes me with how many types of drumsticks there are on the market.  I have played most of them and have one thing to say about 95% of them:  Boring!  I can play any drumstick in the world, but I choose to play Custom Stix™.  Why?  They are anything but boring.  I am constantly getting asked what kind of sticks are those, and where did you get those, and I am always being asked by fans, “Can I have your sticks?”  I love the fact I can hand them a pair of sticks that are different than any other sticks they have at home.  My sticks are different!  They represent me.  Custom Stix™ are an extension of who I am as a person as well as who I am as a drummer. 

    If you haven’t already checked them out, give them a try, you will love them and your fans will too!

  • Stick of the Week-Stryper

    I've been a huge fan of these guys since I was in the 8th grade.  They were my introduction to Contemporary Christian Music.  "Honestly" and "To Hell with the Devil" were my favorites from the album by that name.  After starting Custom Stix I set a goal to have these guys as a client.  When that day arrived I felt like I could leave this earth having accomplished a big thing.  These guys were the biggest band I could dream of working with and to this day I am honored to provide them the highest quality custom graphic drumsticks in the world.
