For more than ten years, Kellan has been a touring musician playing all over the country including some overseas. He toured with Guns N Roses (Paradise City) and Bob Seger (Silver Bullet) tribute acts in 2005. After playing in the tribute scene for a while he crossed over into country music in 2007 playing with County Road 5 for nine years. Kellan’s technicality and finesse towards drums has been a great compliment to every project he has been involved with. His love for music and the drums shows with every groove he lays down. Kellan’s mother and father are both musicians and introduced him to the drum set at the age of three. “ I got my first drum set for Christmas at age three and ever since I was hooked on hitting things such as magazines, pots and pans. " I would practice with music on the radio everyday as a kid!” Most of Kellan’s music influences includes british rock and prog rock. Rush, Deep Purple, Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold, Clutch, Rival Sons, Gov't Mule. My teaching strategy is to teach the fundamentals and basics of the drum set and how to play. We will go over reading snare rudiments and full set grooves and learn different rhythmic styles of music.
