Hi. I recently moved to Hummelstown from Hatfield, Montgomery County. I figured I'd put myself out there and introduce myself.
This is a post from WebMeGo that showed my profile when I was with the band, Voice In The Mirror based out of Lansdale, Pa a few years back:
Dwight Sisak"AKA" Animal
"Dwight got his start playing music at the age of 4 on his mother's pots, pans & lids, literally. His mother decided to take him to the local music store. There he got his first set of bongos. He started playing drums at the age of 7, on an old vintage 1940's set of drums that a friend of his had. After that, he was hooked. Having been influenced by the big band music of the 30 & 40's then progressing to all other genre of music while growing up, he incorporated many drum techniques & unique styles he learned from listening & watching other drummers perform.
Although he is self taught, he has his own style of playing and prides himself in staying in the pocket. He plays with the philosophy that, less is more. He was in a number of bands after moving central Florida in 1973.
When living Ocala, Fla, he got his big break in 1980 when he was asked to play drums for WMOP/WFUZ country radio rolling radio show band, Goldrush. They opened up for acts such as, John Anderson, Sylvia, Johnny Taylor & Johnny Duncan to name a few.
He also had the opportunity to do studio work for WESH TV out of Holly Hill/Daytona Beach, Fl. as well as local cable access TV 7 in Ocala. His drum playing has been constantly evolving, maturing and getting better with age."
I'm in my mid 60's now and still enjoy playing my kit whenever possible. Although I do miss my acoustic kit, the Yamaha DTX 502 series E drums which I am playing now are very diversified which allows me to have a number of different kits at my disposal when needed. If you are searching for a drummer who stays in the pocket, puts the dynamics & fill-ins where they need to be and is an established, working band that's in the immediate area, please contact me. Seasoned, serious musicians only please.
