10.15.2014: Drummer Boy Seeks Greener Pastures

It's been fun!
It's been real!
It's been real fun!

But, all good/fun things must come to an end. And, no matter how it saddens us, we have to say goodbye. Our drummer, Tim McCarthy, has decided to leave Seven Soul and pursue greener pastures. Of course, we'll miss his versatile and impeccable drumming style (not to mention, his whacked sense of humor!). But, we do wish him the best in his future musical pursuits!

If you're bumming like we are, don't worry... you have one last chance to catch Tim on the Seven Soul drummer's "throne." He'll be with us at Goodfellas Bar in Cedar Lake, Indiana, this Saturday! HEY... no tears in beers, k?

So, who's going to sit on the Seven Soul throne now?

Glad you asked... we are extremely pleased to welcome Kevin Wagner as the newest member of Seven Soul!

Kevin's love affair with the drums started at age 10, when he joined the school concert band. After that, his love for the drums never faltered. He's been in many bands over the years, playing covers and originals, both live and in the studio. While in the U.S. Navy, he even started a band on board the ship, playing several shows overseas. He's done it all. And, he owes it all to his major musical influences, including Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Neil Peart, John Bonham, Keith Moon, Dave Grohl, Mike Portnoy, Stewart Copeland, and Ginger Baker... to name a few.

We're thrilled that Kevin is coming to Seven Soul's greener pastures! Because, other than Kevin's equally impeccable drumming skills, we won't miss out on that whacky drummer sense of humor. Kevin also has it in spades.

(Then again, aren't all drummers a little rattled in the brain?) ;-)

We know you'll want to give Kevin a huge SoulMate welcome, so watch our calendar for upcoming shows! Or, make it easy on yourself and LIKE us on Facebook! That way, our event invites will come to you.

As we say goodbye to one drummer and hello to another, here's a nice way of putting it all in perspective:

    Oh, we plan to work his fingers down to nubs, Boyd! ;-) Actually, we're really excited to get out there with him. Can't tell you how impressed the singers have been with his uncanny ability to pick up a new song almost instantly, even after we give him the vaguest of description of the beat. I guess we're going to have to raise our game and throw some REALLY challenging stuff at him! (All suggestions are welcome.) :D
