Brandon Bernardo, 17, has been playing drums since he was 12. Spurred on by watching some of his favorite drummers perform live, he went on to buy his own kit and take lessons from some of the best. Currently, Brandon is playing in a band with a group of his friends. His new Soultones are easily the favorite of all the cymbals he's played. Some of his influences include: Chad Butler - Switchfoot, Nate Young - Anberlin, Darren King - MuteMath, Ronnie Vannucci Jr - The Killers, Longineu Parsons III - Yellowcard, and of course his home town favorite, Brad Nyght.
