Artists


Matt Kadi
One of the first CT artists that basically borrowed the first kit, serial #00001, and fell in love with it. Kadi is an old friend in many smelly ways. He is surely one of the hardest working talented drummers in the underground scene. Kadi played in a highly influential punk band named MONSTER SQUAD, that was initially signed under a record label owned by the Causalities and has toured all over the USA and Europe. They still get asked to play as special guests at large festivals in Berlin and abroad. Kadi also plays with a few other SF based bands that are constantly gigging, recording, filming and always getting rave reviews. Kadi’s repertoire of any musical style and overwhelming discography has accomplished him as a staple drummer in his scene.

Karl Wilcox
Another great friend to us at Crockett Tubs. I have gone on tour several times with Karl and always am impressed every night with the extent of professionalism and diversity in his drumming and skills as a musician and band leader. He is truly a professional yet lacks the arrogant attitude you will typically find in others of his caliber. He plays in the legendary UK rock band, DIAMOND HEAD. Their legacy still ranks among the most influential of the genre, most notably for their widely-acknowledged influence on Metallica and Megadeth. Their more recent USA and European short-run tours has opened their fan base up to all ages while showing their appreciation to their true fans that have followed them for the past few decades to witness a great, live rock band putting on a true show of pure talent and skill. Karl has studied and is a frequent regular at New York’s premier DRUMMER’S COLLECTIVE. His admirable work involved with a charitable organization know as S.O.P.A. (Standing Ovation for Performing Arts). He has been working with children on a musical basis at various assemblies in Africa and beyond. Recently, Karl also owns and operates a newly renovated carriage house recording facility in Upper Saddle River, NJ and operates his own production company SLIMEY LIMEY. Karl is also a listed artist with REMO DRUMHEADS and ZILDJIAN CYMBALS

Jeff Marrs
Want to see a true jazz player switch to hard double bass rock to moody blues and back to swing? Jeff is your man. Literally. Jeff Marrs received his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees, in jazz performance, from the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. He has played with countless numbers of jazz artists, nearly at every major jazz festival, and has quickly become on the top on-call drummers in the great San Francisco Bay Area. Jeff has recorded PBS documentary soundtracks and numerous television recordings. Jeff has been providing private instruction to young musicians of all ages for over ten years, and is a part-time professor at Los Medanos College, the Jazzschool Institute (Berkeley, CA) and is a faculty member at UC Berkeley.

He is also a listed artist with EVANS DRUMHEADS.
