I bought Jamstix 2 a few weeks ago, and I'm trying to figure out which drummers/bands go with the included set of drummers. I'm a guitarist and not as familiar with all the drummers out there and their styles to be able to match a real personality to the Jamstix drummer. I've got some of them, but does anyone want to help me fill in the blanks? Thanks in advance! Roy :help:

I don't have Jamstix, but just a guess:

Danny = Danny Carey of Tool.

MIke = Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater. Ha. Right.

Here's the relevant Rayzoon forum thread with some names, pics and reference to drummerworld for more info (like who they played with). Halfway down the page has the pics, so match them with a search on drummerworld.

I'm surprised they don't have any of the Stax or Motown drummers.
Even if the piano player can't play, keep the party going.

Great list - thanks.

Does anyone know if the two Jamcussionists are modeled after real people? They are:

Handy (doesn't sound real to me)
Percy (could be real)

Ron

It's Peter Magadini actually (Diana Ross, George Duke, Al Jarreau)

Yep. I see where that was corrected on the Rayzoon site as well. (Darn, I really like Erskine.)
