MARK MONROE

 

My brother Steve let me play his drums when I was 10, and I have never looked back.  I got a music degree at Drake in 1976, and played gigs 6 nights a week my senior year.  Including my college years, I have played in concert bands, symphony orchestras, percussion ensembles, big bands, country bands, rock bands, a funk band or two, and more jazz trios and quartets than I can count, including the John Lewis Trio (with Susie Miget), the Jim Oatts quartet, the Scott Davis Quintet, and a fine country/rock/rhythm and blues band called Borderline, and also a good club band called Hip Pocket.  As you can see, I came to the blues late, but ready to play.  I consider my single biggest accomplishment to be having tolerated  working with Vern Hansen for over 26 years.  What was I thinking?
