Will Andrews is a professional drummer in Seattle, WA. At a young age. Growing up near Boston MA, Will’s passion for music naturally led him to attend Berklee College of Music where he studied with the great Mike Mangini, currently of Dream Theater. After years of practice and preparation, Will left Boston and moved to Seattle in his late teens to pursue new projects that would perpetuate his growth as a musician.

With the ability to fit into many musical situations with confidence and creativity, Will has worked his way into becoming a stalwart of the Seattle music scene. He is known his intense, hard-hitting approach when playing heavier styles of music and his use of subtlety, groove, musicality and dynamics when accompanying songwriters. He is also well-versed in odd time and polyrhythm. During the last few decades, Will has played on dozens of recordings ranging from progressive rock, alternative rock, singer songwriter, metal, and experimental. He has performed live in clubs, arenas and everything in between. He is the current drummer for major Seattle acts, Walking Papers and Ten Miles Wide and Night Palm. 

Walking Papers has headlined tours in the US and Europe, and toured supporting Alice In Chains, Aerosmith, and Myles Kennedy. Ten Miles Wide has toured the west coast performed with Korn and Stone Sour. New albums from both bands are currently in the works.

Will is currently a Paiste, Vater and Savage artist.

Marco’s inclination towards the kit started at 14 years old, having the fortune to get a vintage Japanese drum kit at that time. He began taking lessons and it was quite evident that the fascination for the instrument became quite immersive.

Loving the ins and outs of the drums, he became quite influenced by classic, hard rock, new wave, and progressive rock from the late 70s to late 80s. His drumming influences are quite vast because of the varied types of acts he grew up listening to.

Currently he plays in various bands in Orlando Fl. concentrating his time with veterans: Blue Meridian and Dirty Shannon.

Having a substantial collection of snares he definitely favors his Savage Custom Drums Bell Brass 5mm Replica, it being at the apex of the collection!

Born in The Netherlands, Dennis Leeflang picked up a pair of drum sticks for the first time at age 8, joining a local marching band. In 1996, having just turned 17, Dennis was a founding member of Within Temptation, Holland’s biggest musical export since The Golden Earring. After successful collaborations with other Dutch bands such as Sun Caged and Epica, Dennis traded windmills for skyscrapers in the early 2000’s.

Apart from touring extensively with Bumblefoot and various other artists such as The Saturnine, Ted Poley (Danger Danger) and Lita Ford, Dennis built his own recording studio in Queens in 2007, enabling him to collaborate through remote recording as well as record music with local musicians. 

In 2015, Dennis relocated to Los Angeles, where he has collaborated with artists such as Dilana (Rockstar Supernova), Mitch Perry (Cher, Edgar Winter), Megan Ruger (The Voice), Kenny Kanowski (Steelheart), T-Bone Andersson (Gov’t Mule), Francesco DiCosmo (Evanescence, Thin Lizzy), Steve Fekete (Avril Lavigne, Gwen Stefani), Paulie Z (ZO2, The Sweet), Victor Brodén (LeAnn Rimes, Thompson Square) and Eric Dover (Slash’ Snakepit, Jellyfish, Alice Cooper), Tony Franklin (The Firm, Blue Murder, Whitesnake), as well as producers such as Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, Jason Mraz) and Ken Caillat (Fleetwood Mac, Colbie Caillat).
