Tom Tom Magazine: What is your favorite venue and why?

Twink: My favorite venue is the NorVa in Norfolk VA.  I wish that I could give an awesome musician answer like it’s because of the awesome acoustics that the venue has but I honestly don’t remember how the venue sounds.  What I can remember is the ENERGY that the venue/crowd gave off and professionalism and kindness of the staff.  Here’s a pic of the crowd at a Mambo Sauce show.

What is your kit set-up?

I play on a standard 5 piece with about 2-3 cymbals.  Sometimes I’ll add an additional floor tom just to add a little more depth (so I guess that makes it a 6 piece). lol  I’m very basic and I believe less is more.  I don’t think you need a ton of drums and cymbals to be awesome.

Who is your idol and why?

I look up to different people for different things.  As far as drummers go, I grew up listening to Dennis Chambers.  My parents were HUGE Parliment funkadelic fans and Mr Chambers used to gig with them.  I naturally gravitated toward his style of playing.  

What drives you?

That family whose belongings are being sifted through because they couldn’t make ends meet and they’ve been set out.  Those abused children with no voice.  The single parents.  The have-nots.  Life (and not just my personal life) is my catalyst.  Every time I write lyrics to a song, produce a new track, and/or perform (drum) at a show I’m speaking for those who either cannot speak for themselves or just don’t know what to say.  That’s what drives me!
