Garrett Hawkins

Live Drumming

What are you looking for in a live drummer? I have experience playing in just about every type of venue imaginable from stadiums, bars, and churches, to weddings, rodeos, and house shows. I have completely professional gear, can play with or without clicks and tracks, and have experience playing live with bands in a huge range of musical styles. Whether you’re looking for a drummer for a stadium tour, or a percussionist to play Cajon at a coffee shop gig, I have all the equipment and experience needed to back up your band.

The Story So Far

In 2016 I played a total of 73 shows around California touring and playing with a variety of Rock bands, Country artists, and Punk groups. Doing this allowed me to open up for some huge names in Country Music such as Cannan Smith, Exile, Aaron Watson, and Mark Chestnutt, and to experience what touring life is truly like. Since moving to Tennessee I've become the drummer for multiple house bands and churches, and continue to play live multiple times a week.

Garrett is hard working and prepared. I would recommend him for your project, but I’d rather keep him for myself!

- Nate Smith, Worship Director at Hillside Church

I had a drummer cancel shortly before a tour, and contacted Garrett about playing drums. He learned a large set list for the band extremely quickly and accurately. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

- Matt W, Manager, Lace & Lead Band

I’ve had the pleasure of playing in two bands with Garrett. He is a very tight drummer and is open to anything musically. You can’t go wrong when choosing him.

- Sean Dougan, Ember Beside Us, Coventry Square

Garrett is one of the most technically spot-on drummers around. It truly has been an honor to have had the privilege to work with him.

- Bubba, Bubba and the Boys

Garrett puts 110% in everything he does. From playing in the studio to performing live shows, he is one of the best upcoming drummers around!

- Chad Bushnell

I’d be hard-pressed to imagine a better drummer and person. I give him a 5-star rating. Unequivocally
