Might look like a jumbled mess, but it’s everything I need for a kick, snare & hat setup. It’s my version of a portable kit fit into one 24” @aheaddrumsticks Bass Drum bag that I can quickly setup and tear down.

All set for another sunrise outdoor drum jam. This one will be under a bridge along Clark Creek in Acworrh.

About Mike’s Drum Tracking...

Mike Gruwell is an Atlanta-area drummer working out of his home studio in Acworth, GA. In addition to drum tracking work, Mike creates his own original music featuring drums, bass, trumpet, piano and percussion.

Mike also serves local churches behind the kit, including West Ridge Church and New Season Church, as a worship drummer.

In the late 80s and early 90s, Mike was the drummer for several original-music bands in Seattle, including DFL, Stone Dresden, Black Moses, Mushmouth and 420 Love.

Mike moved to Atlanta in 1997 and after a short stint with local bands began to pursue skydiving for the next 20 years. Mike, and his wife Stephanie, built and continue to run the skydiving gear retailer, education blog and parachute rigging school, ChutingStar, serving skydivers worldwide.
