We would like to extend a warm welcome to drummer Eddy Jones of Head East to the Carmichael Throne family. Eddy is a Kansas City area drummer/singer who is currently playing with the legendary rock band “Head East”.
Eddy Jones was born and raised in St. Joseph, MO. He received his first drum kit and began playing drums at the age of 5. Eddy’s interest in music was fueled by his grandfather who played violin, pedal steel and electric guitars in country bands for square dances and county fairs. And he played his first paid gig with his grandfather at age 12 for $25.
Eddy played and recorded with many Kansas City area bands prior to joining Head East and has played with jazz singer Queen Bay and Kansas City jazz legends guitarist Sonny Kenner and bassist Milt Abel. He has studied Jazz and Latin Drums with Gary Chaffee, Todd Strait, John Cushon, Kent Burnham, and “The Drum Counselor”, GoGo Ray. Eddy plays Sonor, Yahama, and Pearl Drums, uses Remo drumheads, and Vic Firth drumsticks. He is endorsed by Soultone cymbals and Carmichael drum thrones. Eddy enjoys teaching drums and has worked as a drum instructor for PJ Olsson’s Rock Camp.
