Lou Santiago Jr. has already had a remarkable musical career that is the stuff urban legends are made of. Born in New York City Lou has had some amazing career highlights including: winning the 2001 Guitar Center South East Regional Drum-Off, placing him 7th in the nation. Two years later, in 2003, he won the over 18 age division of Modern Drummer's world-wide "Undiscovered Drummer" contest and soon after toured with legendary trumpeter Maynard Ferguson in his Big Bop Nouveau Band.

Since then, Lou has gone on to work with some of the industry's finest artists, such as John Benitez, Adam Nitti, Alex Acuñ a, Luis Conte and more. Latin and English CCM artists such as Marco Barrientos, Raul Sanchez, Christine D’clario, Lamar Boschman, Jeff Deyo, Natalie Grant, Anthony Evans, Seventh Day Slumber, and many more.

In addition to performance, Lou has a passion for teaching. He has been a successful masterclass clinician, inspiring and influencing drummers of all ages both in Europe and the United States. Highlighted in Modern Drummer Magazine, Lou says his goal is, "To become a better person and drummer than I was yesterday. I sincerely believe that music both inspires and speaks to people. I pray that my drumming does the same.”

In 2008, Lou launched which was the first of its kind. The site consisted of online drumming lessons which averaged between 15-20 minutes in length being sold for $0.99. Despite its instantaneous success, Lou would later take the site down as a sacriHice in hopes to reintroduce it upon completion of a larger vision despite knowing he would lose primary online “real-estate”. The bigger vision was to incorporate medicine with drumming. Despite not being taken seriously, Lou believed in his vision and began the journey to become a health care provider.

In 2010, Lou began his undergraduate studies in Biomedical Sciences. He graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2013. While awaiting acceptance to a program in Physician Associate Studies, Lou was called to a seven-month tour with Seventh Day Slumber. Lou was accepted and attended CUNY School of Medicine and graduated Magna Cum Laude in January 2019.

Currently, Lou is a business owner, educator, and provider in several areas with the foundations being in both music and medicine. Lou practices rural medicine in the remote villages of Alaska providing medical care to the Native tribes. Prior to this Lou practiced Emergency and Urgent Care Medicine in NYC and was on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Born and raised in Myrtle Beach, SC, Mike Rogers, whose father Tom was a South Carolina State Fiddle Champion, took an interest in music at a very early age. He started out on drums in his Dad’s Country band and soon was backing one of the top Rock bands in Myrtle Beach. By the end of high school Rogers was backing a former Liberty Records artist on drums and considering the move to Nashville. After deciding to stay in Myrtle Beach, start a family and play at the local music theater, Rogers made the move to Nashville in 2002 where he would play drums and some acoustic guitar for the likes of Country artist Kevin Denney and Craig Morgan. After a break from the drums to concentrate on lead vocals and acoustic guitar with Bluegrass Legend Doyle Lawson, Rogers made the jump back into Country music.  Most recently he can be seen on stage as a member of Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. While he’s normally singing backgrounds and playing acoustic guitar with Ricky on Bluegrass shows he then makes the switch over to drums for the Country portion. Rogers also includes singer, producer and songwriter to his resume. In 2009 he co-wrote on of the most played songs for that year, “Bonfire” which was recorded by Craig Morgan. Rogers is also a member of the quartet Fortune/Walker/Rogers/Isaacs.

Through dedicated rudimental practice, which also consisted of studying and playing the drums, Lawrence grew strongly and skillfully as a musician.

Staying both humble and faithful to his gift, Lawrence has played for a few local artists in his hometown of Newark, New Jersey and also with some of the best musicians in the tri-state area. Currently, Lawrence teaches drums and is the drummer for his up and coming Christian band The remnants of Levi.
