Shannon Roll

I started playing drums in 1989 while living in Germany. Through the years I have played in various rock and blues cover bands, been in the pit for community and school musicals, the Rockin' 1000 Rise Up Video in New York City, and the Rockin' 1000 concert in Frankfurt, Germany in 2019. I took a break from playing in a band for many years and got back to it seriously this year. I'm currently the drummer for the band Loophole and we're patiently (trying to anyway) waiting for the current shelter at home situation to end so we can unleash ourselves on the Cincinnati area. They were going to help me record my song, but Ohio locked down before we could shoot the video. So good, bad and ugly, here it is.

My influences include Neil Peart, Carl Palmer, Steve Smith and Dave Grohl.

Stay healthy and safe and Rock On!
