Jimmy Ford

Jimmy started drumming at the tender age of 3 years old. He went on to study with various drum instructors to perfect his talent.

It was one late afternoon out for a drive with the family where the young drummer saw a sign for a Buddy Rich concert that would impact the youngsters life forever. After seeing Buddy with his Orchestra, Jimmy knew that he wanted to play drums. When he was 16 he entered the "Slingerland Louie Belson National Drum Contest," in which he came in 3rd place...
