Carlos was 9 years old when he found his passion for playing drums. He would sit on the edge of his bed with two makeshift drums sticks, made out of wooden hangers, banging out a beat on his mattress. This was the beginning of Carlos’ musical career. As he got a little older he started playing with area bands. Smokestack, a well known band in the area, was one of the first bands he played with. He would sit in with the band doing vocals and occasionally playing the drums. He finally put together a three piece band called Medusa, where he sang lead vocals and played drums. Carlos was inspired by musicians such as Bonham and Don Brewer from Grand Funk. Carlos has played with numerous bands over the years. He has played with such as Blind Image, Sol Patch, Rock Trip, John Allen, Wes Creech, Cedar Fever, and Rex Foster. Carlos was voted Drummer of the Year in the reader’s choice awards in 2007 and still holds the title today. Carlos has played all types of music, but his favorite is vocal harmony.
