Ken Grutza     Drums/Percussion


Ken is married with four children and two step-children living in the western suburbs.  An avid drummer, he has been playing since the age of 8.  His many musical influences include Buddy Rich, Carl Palmer, Jeff Pocaro, Neil Peart, Terry Bozzio, and Vinnie Coliauta.

Ken owns drumsets that include Gretsch, Rogers, and Crush.  His favorite drums to play are Gretsch, but plays the Crush drums live because they look so cool!  He is a Paiste Cymbal fanatic. Ken likes DW pedals, Roland Electronics, Yamaha hardware, and Vic Firth sticks.

When Ken is not drumming he enjoys a myriad of activities including downhill and water skiing, motorcycling, bicycling, working on cars, and house projects. This guy just can’t sit still!

Ken’s favorite OaD tune to play is 'Carry On' (Wayward Son) by Kansas.
