Andy Ziker - Drums, Vocals

Soon after, he and his brother began writing songs in their basement crawlspace, with pet gerbils as their only audience. Andy started played professionally at the age of 13 and because a full-time musician soon after. He now performs, teaches, and writes about drums. Andy never smiles when he plays, so be sure to cheer him up the next time you see him.
