Ed Mays / Bio

Known for his awesome groove and mastery of many styles, Ed Mays is sought after as a drummer for his ability to fit into almost any professional situation on the spot and make the band sound tight. Ed knows thousands of songs in all genres. This comes from many years of freelancing as well as playing in all manner of commercial bands. Also known for his awesome technique and coordinated independence skills as well as highly developed powers of improvisation, Ed is a music educator and one of those rare players who can not only read music but also has “ears”. His ability to improvise was enhanced and refined over many years of improvisation on stage as well as in studio settings. With these combined skills, Ed knows when to “lay it down” with a trance-like intensity that would force anybody to dance but can also “stretch out” if needed to take the band where no band has gone before.
