BTO - Burke Thomas Overdrive.  Drum lessons, Music Performance and Production.

Here’s my very brief music bio

I’m currently an independent composer/producer, as well as drummer for Duff McKagan’s Loaded, Vendetta Red, DoctorFunk, Curse of the North, Megasapien, Pris, and many others.

I’ve jammed with Smashing Pumpkins, Offspring, Down, Mark Lanegan and Wanz, as well as members of Motorhead, Pearl Jam, Perfect Circle, Prince’s New Power Generation, Sade, Sugar Ray, Yellowcard, Third Eye Blind, Roger Fisher of Heart, Leroy Bell, and Donna Dupras.

Bands looking for a drummer for hire, email for rates and scheduling.

A couple audio engineering highlights include Rick Steves’ “iPod Italy Museum Tour” and Weezer’s “Lullaby for Wayne” and “Jamie” on DGC Rarities.
