brad moser - Hangmans Joke drummer
We asked Brad to tell us about how he got into drumming and what he loves about it:
Q. How did you get into drumming? What's your style?
A. I have been playing drums for about 15 years now. I got my first kit when I was 14 and it changed my life. My style/technique is drawn mainly from my influences who are all over the musical spectrum, ranging from Louis Bellson to Shannon Larkin of Godsmack. I am a very animated and hard hitting drummer who loves to entertain just as much as I love to play.
Q How did your band come to be?
A. Hangmans Joke formed in May of 2014. We are a hard rock three piece band from North Dakota with a southern twist. Each member of the band has a very unique and distinctive style that gives us the hard southern sound that we have.
Q. What is the best and worst part about playing on the road/tour?
A. The hardest part of being on the road is being away from family and friends. The upside of being on the road is being able to play music for all the people out there. Also being able to see the country is an amazing part of touring.
Q. Do you use your custom drumsticks for merch, playing or both?
A. The dual butt end sticks I play are awesome, I couldn't ask for a better stick. We do not sell our sticks because I believe that as a fan it is way more personal to get a stick that has been played and thrown or given to you rather than buy an unused stick that you can get from any music store.
