Come get started on an exciting adventure of learning to play the drums!
My name is Gregg Eckersen and I was born in Daytona Beach and have been a life long resident of this area. Like most drummers my interest in drums began when I was a small child. I would collect empty coffee cans and gather a couple sticks from the yard and "make a joyful noise". When I was in elementary school I joined the school band and learned to play the snare drum and other percussion instruments. At the age of 14, I joined my first "garage band". Our first gig was at "Skateland". We received $5.00 per man. Since then I have been in countless numbers of bands and played at many different venues in and around the Daytona area. In 2005 I started the Daytona chapter of "Drummers for Jesus" of which I am still the chapter leader.
