- Mike Dagnon is one of our south drummers, from Colorado Springs. He has been drumming for 25 years, having always wanting to be a drummer (It's innate, folks!). Some of his influences are Vinnie Paul, Gene Hoglan, Dave Lombardo, and Bill Ward. Mike is currently playing in a metal band, "Harvest the People." When we asked him what his musical philosophy is, he stated that, "Music has always been a way for me to express my limited creativity. As well as an outlet for sobriety." Good going, Mike! Equipment Mike uses includes Pearl Drums, zildjian, DW pedals, Remo heads, Vic Firth sticks. He does have formal training from private lessons to drum line, and he can be found at Harvest the people on Facebook.
