Ladies and Gentleman, Introducing (finally) The Newest 8track!

Welcome Johnny Schmittou!

Growing up in the Nashville area, Johnny did the school band thing from elementary through his first two years of college. He cut his teeth on CCR and Grand Funk – later getting into R&B and jazz – anything with a good groove. Some of his current drummer influences are Steve Gadd, Dave Weckl, Manu Katché, Peter Erskine and Antonio Sanchez.

“I’d rather play drums than do anything else”, says Johnny. “I’m always fascinated and amazed with drums and percussion. There’s always something new to learn. And the thing I love the most is playing good live music to an enthusiastic audience.”
