Hello, I am John Hollis, drummer and percussionist. I've played music for decades across the west coast, Seattle, Bay Area, and LA. I have also spent some time in Texas, Arizona, Oklahoma, Nevada, Colorado, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Louisiana, New Mexico, New York, on tour with various artists.
I was trained as an orchestral percussionist, specializing in marimba, tympani, and snare drum, crash cymbals and tambourine. I went on to record, tour and play with a variety of artists in the Pacific Northwest, on the drumkit, as a backup percussionist and/or vocalist. I now live in the Bay Area and te ... ach students of all ages in my private studio, and play with select outfits.
I know too many songs to list. And I can learn anything in a heartbeat.
I have Eastern Washington State upbringing, was a swimmer, turned musician at a young age. I studied music at WSU and I perform and teach regularly.
I was 1st chair in the Washington Idaho Symphony for several years with my instructor as principal, playing the world's greatest music.
