Explosive and hard hitting is just a couple of words to describe one of Cleveland’s best drummers around, Danny Hearns III. Born and raised a musician Danny began playing at the age of 5, and hasn’t stopped since. Danny showed great potential in his early years playing drums. His father, Danny Hearns Jr, also a drummer, saw Danny’s talent and introduced him to many different styles of music. Danny studied bands like The Doors, Motley Crue, Van Halen, Led Zepplin, and The Who. Danny started playing shows at the age of 14 and took off like a rocket! At that point he joined his first band, Chronic Corruption. They were an all original band made up of four high school freshman playing hard rock n roll music. Danny parted ways after one year of playing with Chronic Corruption, but took bass player Greg David and formed a punk band that he would play in until Danny got his big break with a band called Start it Up! That year Danny Hearns, 17 years old, won the Regional drum off at Guitar Center, and also was in a New Found Glory music video. From that point on Danny knew he wanted to be a professional musician. Danny has grown tremendously with talent, and is now currently working with artist such as The Jimmy Jack Band, Zup, and Dj Swerve.
Chris is the little bit of country to Jimmy’s Rock & Roll! Chris’s country influence and the water torture treatment have been responsible for Jimmy adding more country to the setlists. That’s right water torture treatment.
