Passionate, Pocket and Feel session drummer for hire. Affordably priced high quality drum tracks.

I live, eat and sleep all things to do with drums. Playing and collecting drums for over 35 years and gigging consistently since 1988. Throughout my drumming career I've been lucky to play with many different musicians and bands, ranging from Rock, Country, Roots, Folk and Blues. My pocket/feel playing style lends itself well to Americana, Outlaw/Southern Country, Folk, Indie and Singer Songwriter genres, where I support the song and play with feel. As well as the above genres, I'm also a member of a worship team at a local church and have recently tracked drums for a worship album. Aside from session work, I'm currently a member of 5 different bands and fill any open dates I have, freelancing for local bands.

Visit my Tik Tok page @manicoti_drums and instagram page: manicoti_drums for a large sample of my playing style covering hundreds of songs from different artists and different genres. All songs were recorded in my home studio using a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 interface and Logic Pro X.

Equipment at my disposal ranges from Vintage Camco, Gretsch, Ludwig and Rogers drums kits and two A&F Drum Co drum kits. Snare drums (25 in total) also range from vintage to modern metal and wood in various sizes. As well as the many Istanbul Agop cymbals I use in my session and live scenarios, I also have Sabian HHX, Istanbul Mehmet and Bosphorus for different sound option/requests.

    Mark has done many studio sessions for my music and he's a total pro! Highly recommended and very versatile. One of central Alberta's finest drummers.

    I had Mark drum a track for me recently and I was very happy with the end result. Mark works hard to capture exactly what you are looking for and his main goal is to serve the song. He was open to suggestions and had an open line of communication throughout the entire process. I emphatically recommend Mark for any upcoming projects you may have, and I will definitely be using him again in the future!
