Lou Mars (FullLength) Winning drum solo recorded at Herrieds Music Chico California

My style is described as a show drummer. Capable of supporting most types of music but specializing in Rock, Indie, Alternative, Metal and Funk. I'm easy to get along with, like to laugh and keep it fun while taking my role seriously when on stage or in the studio.

My drumming is currently being featured in the Dixon Drum your way to Hollywood special airing on the Comcast on demand A&R Channel. You can also view the show at loumarsdrums.com page. A list of my media coverage is provided below.
