Drummer: Brain Tyranny
Bio: Brain Tyranny has been playing drums since age 16, starting with rock’n’roll, then punk rock, then everything from jazz to country to a Tom Jones cover band. I have played on almost every stage in San Francisco at some time or another. My most successful band was Gargoyles, a popular 77-style punk band in the early 90s that released several records and CDs. The country band Big Mistake also did well, and has a great CD. Recently I often plays a bucket kit with band like Imperial Pints, or play jazz standards with bands like Layette Prime Rib. Currently I split my time between New Orleans and Grass Valley, CA. I’m available for gigs or session work anytime I’m in your area!
