We have been a fan of Alan's and the Strayhorns for 18 years and can't wait to hear you, Alan, and the rest of your band this Friday Night in Fort Myers, FL. My Dad was a union drummer and his last drum set before he passed away was a Tama.I used to love hearing him play that 6 1/2 X 14 king beat snare!! If it's not too much trouble we would like to say hello if we could. No problem at all if you can't do it.
Thanks,

Comments:Dear Bruce,

It is an honor to sign your guestbook and contact you today. I have been listening to country music all my life and I have been a drummer for 13 years. I just graduated college with a BA in Music. I started playing with plastic spoons on plastic bowls when I was 3. When I was 10 years old, I wanted to play for real. When I started playing to Alan Jackson and Garth Brooks, I was getting frustated because I couldn't stay in time nor play a simple beat. I took lessons and learned how to read drum music and play with a metronome. I started turning away from country in Middle School. I got into Jazz, Blues and Rock. In high school I was band leader, percussion section leader, and concert master. Senior year of high school, I was invited to see a Toby Keith concert. It was then when I started listening to country again. The performance and entertainment got me hooked. I made the choice to study music in college with a concentration in performance because I grew up learning how to be an entertainer by watching other performers. Growing up, you and Mike Palmer (Garth Brooks) gave me such inspiration. Your drumming is so musical. Your phrasing on your fills are perfect (something I am in the middle of perfecting). I am currently learning the Nashville Number System. I have a friend who is currently in the process of getting signed and becoming a future country artist. She wants me to be her drummer. I am so thrilled and excited because it is something I always wanted to do since I saw Luke Bryan in a small bar in Ohio. I belong in Nashville playing Country music and that is where I hope God is taking me. Again it has been a pleasure and I hope to see you in person one day. Have fun with Alan. He is a great entertainer and it was one of the best concerts I have seen. Be safe, have fun and God Bless!

Respectfully,

Joey G

It was really gracious of you. Most players in your position wouldn't have been so cool. The show was great and you were solid. Hope the gig in Murphys was as good or better.

I am auditioning for a local band as their new drummer. They play alot of Alan Jackson songs and a verity of differant types of music to try and please the crowd (and you know you can't do that all the time).
This just a hobby and if I going to play any style of music I would like to play the song with as much good representation and respect to the song.

One of my favorite drummers is Tommy Aldridge just for his all around style but there are many great ones. I like a guy down in Georgia named John Mcknight too. Me I've never been flashyn just meat and potatoes. Lol. Anyway good writing you and keep up the great work with Alan.

You look like you are doing well and have had an exciting life.

Alan introduced the band and I came up out of my chair yelling for Dale (McKinney) to see the drummer. Every since then when I see an AJ video, I always stop to see if they do a close up on the drummer. It is always cool to see a classmate done well. I e-mailed Mark Chapman a couple times a few years back. Was going to meet him at Grumps in Southside for lunch but yet to be able to set time aside for catchup. Take care.

Comments: Hi Bruce,
Just starting out to play more serious stuff, I try to pattern my rhythm from country artists like yourself, as I get motivation from such talent as Alan Jackson and his band, (namely yourself!). Not too many artists have captured the mood of 911 as you have, sheds tears don't it. Anyway, I have had the privilege to play with Canadian Cheryl Dunn, on tour in Canada, and I listen to you guys to practice some of those wonderfull licks you do. Thanks for the inspiration, the challenge!

I just wanted to tell you that your site is looking better and better :) and that Alan couldn't get to "Do What I Do" without the Strayhorns. The Strayhorns are by far, one of the best, if not THE BEST, back-up bands in all of country music! Thanx for sharing your music with us :)
I love your picture gallery. WOW! I never knew you played with Keith Whitley's band... how awesome! You've got so many great pictures on your site! Had to giggle just a little bit at the "disco band" picture ;) I hate to admit that I too remember "those days"....LOL Your career has afforded you many great opportunities to meet and play your music with such a varied group of people. You're a lucky (and talented!) guy!
Hope to see you, AJ, and the rest of the Strayhorns this summer! Take care out there on the road :)

Comments:Hi Bruce,
Your a great drummer and vocalist,It must be a real honor to play for Alan {Huh}. I dropped off a my wife's press kit at alans front gate last week,She is an awsome country music singer. Do you think he got it?
And if he did,what do you think he will do with it? Keep up the good work, your great.

Just Curious,

Comments:Hi Bruce,
Just found your website and wanted to tell you I enjoyed the pictures. I especially liked the early pictures since that's how I remember you from high school. Since I've known you since 5th grade I can honestly say all your success couldn't have happened to a nicer guy! As I told you before, I really enjoyed the 9/29/02 show at the Oak Mountain Amphitheater. Hope to hear from you soon. Take care.

I really enjoyed viewing this website. Anything that is connected to Alan Jackson is of interest to me. I have followed his music past from the start and am so proud to be a platiumn fan club member of such a fine performer as he is. I think he has a great band and I really appreciate listening to it as you can always hear what Alan is singing aside of other bands that drown out the singer. Keep up the good work.
