Kim Hales -percussion
Kim, who claims he has coffee for blood, is a professional chef by day and an expert drummer after dusk. He enjoys reading repair manuals, riding motorcycles, training dogs, and watching 'chick flicks' with his wife. Besides coffee, he favors heavy red wines or Sailor Jerry's rum when it's time to raise a toast. On weekends Kim likes to sit in clubs and play his drums, and has been happily involved in the local music scene for over a decade. He takes this calling seriously, and works on every song until he is satisfied with his contribution to the final product.
Kim's favorite drummer joke: What's the last thing the drummer said before he got kicked out of the band? "Hey guys, I wrote a song!"
