Matt JonesI have been listening to and playing music my entire life. My father has been playing small local gigs as long as I can remember. I started out playing the piano as a child and then the violin. Due to an unfortunate accident chasing a girl, I could no longer play the violin. Then, my next move was to the guitar. I liked it but it still wasn't the right fit. I played for a couple years until finally buying an extremely cheap five piece kit. Neither the kit or the cymbals even had a name on them! I finally bought a nicer 5 piece Tama kit. That mutated into a double pedal kit, with roto-toms and 7 cymbals. I played in a band the rest of my teenage years. When I was 18, I joined the Marine Corps. Unfortunately, they don't allow drum kits in the barracks. I moved to California in 2005, and had a place where I could actually have and play a drum kit. I purchased a cheap used Pearl 5 piece kit with cracked cymbals through Craigslist. This time I was mentally ready to really learn to play! Through various influences, I decided that my 5 piece kit didn't have enough pieces to provide the sound I wanted. I bought a brand new Pearl 8 piece kit that proved hard to learn. After a couple years of playing this new kit, I met Rick Ponce through my work. Coincidentally, his band had just lost their drummer and he found out that I played. I was invited to jam with the group, and the rest is history.
