Drums! Drums! Drums! That’s what Joe Warmbrodt listed as his 3 musical instrument choices for the 5th grade band. He’s been at it now for over 44 years. He became interested in the complexities of jazz while playing in the high school stage band. Private lessons taught him how to interpret and read drum charts, a skill that has come in handy many times throughout his career. While attending the University of Missouri- Columbia, Joe refined his rudimental drumming with the Marching Mizzou Drum Line for 5 years. He studied percussion and performed with the University Concert Band and Percussion Ensemble. Playing professionally on cruise ships allowed him the opportunity to work with musicians from all over the world. He played with groups ranging from Jazz Trios to Big Bands which backed up singers and entertainers. This experience taught him two very important lessons; the ability to learn quickly and to play a variety of styles.Joe has been playing in various Praise Bands for the past 10 years and now combines all his musical experiences to drive the Kingdom Brothers. He resides in St. Louis, MO and is available for private instruction.
