Jimmy Tran, aka MrTinyJam, aka Jimmy Drums, was born at a young age and began playing rock drum set in elementary school. As a budding drummer, Jimmy developed his technique and unique musical style by playing along with the best…. records, learning all the classic and most influential beats at the time. During his teenage years, he was already making a name for himself as … Jimmy… but more importantly a go-to drummer for top 40 gigs. In college, he was introduced to Jazz music by composer Tom Kubis and later expanded his musical repertoire by studying Latin music with Chuck Silverman.
After graduating Cal State Fullerton with a degree in composition, Jimmy toured the world and recorded with various indie bands. He is currently playing with Hawaiian sensation Tini Grey.
Jimmy is always experimenting with ideas of a hybrid drum set and percussion.

Influences: Stewart Copeland, Ringo Starr, Keith Moon and Marco Minnemann

Other endorsements are from his mum and dad.
