We are proud to announce another new member of Summer Son: Tom Kidera joining us on the Drum Set!
While we are certainly sad to see Jason go, we can already tell that Tom is going to be a great fit. Tom has been making appearances with us all over the Midwest, and in a couple of our recent Hotel Sessions (here and here).
With about 2 months worth of Summer Son craziness under his belt by now, and is already feeling right at home. He has a rock-steady groove, some tasty fills, and just last week some moonshine went missing on the band trip–so we are sure he is the right guy for the job. We still haven’t broken the news to his former Jazz teachers that he somehow got roped into playing Country Music, but his recently expanded wardrobe of plaid and flannel tells us that he isn’t too disappointed himself…
By the way–we don’t think it would be fair to end this blog post without telling you that Tom is a TRIPLET!
