Jarrod Alexander returned to the drums for My Chemical Romance’s long awaited reunion concert at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angles on the 20th December 2019. His unique style of playing the drums is born of his eclectic musical tastes and the influences of a wide range of drummers. Jarrod plays with an instinctive mix of power and technical elegance to produce a sound that is richly complex and super loud!

Best known as Jamie Cullum’s drummer, Brad Webb has also played with Amy Winehouse, Paolo Nutini, Tim Minchin and his own projects. He is a versatile drummer with a unique touch and dynamics when playing his Broadkaster kit which he describes as ‘….the perfect mix of modern and classic drum sounds……’ .
