BRAD ELVIS-THE ROMANTICS-BEIER 1.5 STEEL--5.5 X 14~

Had a great time recently at a show with The Romantics with Brad Elvis (The Romantics, The Handcuffs, The Elvis Brothers, Screams) on drums. Brad has been with them for quite some time, and they all are simply great. As always, Brad put on an amazing & enthusiastic display of skill behind his kit. I was particularly thrilled to have him playing a Beier 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 which met with great reviews from the band, sound engineers & crew. Members of the audience even commented on the drum afterwards. His style is so unique, so entertaining, so original, and so complex...It would be hard to describe. I see shades of Keith Moon here and there, and some others like Ginger Baker come to mind. But Brad's style is all uniquely his...And that what makes him so great. His other long running project-The Handcuffs with Chloe F. Orwell, is a band that must be seen if you have the chance. Thank You Brad & The Romantics for a great time....
