    “Stix Finnie”. One of the most well rounded players we know. From funk to rock, be it latin or jazz – Marcus can, and will, play it & play it well. He’s been the go to drummer for Kirk Whalum and is featured on The Gospel According To Jazz IV. Finnie can be found making the perfect Crème brûlée in his spare time.

    What it means to be a drummer; having knowledge of the style you're approaching and the sensibility to play within that style, thinking about the room you're playing in and the people your playing with. All your energy emits from that.
