Drummer Spotlight with STEVE PORT from POLAR BEAR CLUB @polarbearclub @sabian_vault @sjcdrums @remopercussion @vaterdrumsticks
What’s the biggest lie told to a drummer?
Hang on a minute and I’ll help you with your gear.
Drummers always get a bum rap. Why is that? Ever seen a good band with a shitty drummer? No. Know why? BECAUSE THEY DON’T FUCKING EXIST.
Drummers rule! We hit stuff, get peoples’ butts shaking, and ultimately determine whether or not the band is going to perform well. You CANNOT have a solid band without a solid drummer, so all you 6-string wankers out there with your tapping and flooded solos can suck it… This one is for the hitters.
This time, I sat down with Polar Bear Club’s Steve Port. Always the road warrior, Steve’s hard work and drive have really paid of in making his own punk rock dreams come true. I’m sure he’ll have a good time hanging with his favorite band, Bad Religion, when PBC embark on a US tour with the long-running punk legends later this year!
Perhaps I missed the boat a bit, but Polar Bear Club seemed to go from regional punk act to international sensation virtually overnight. Looking further into it, the 5-piece from Rochester/Syracuse, NY have pounded pavement harder than some truck drivers, and continue to do so with their constant touring.
